Information for Indiana is a collaborative project launched by Governor Mitch Daniels in July 2005. It brings together government, university, and private resources in an effort to build a solid foundation of data and analysis for improved policy-making and administrative decision-making by public and private leaders statewide. IFI is working with internal and external partners to assess, improve, and coordinate the collection, management, dissemination, and analysis of vital Indiana data.
This publication is one of a series of subject area issue briefs authored by project steering committee members and other contributors who have been engaged to support the IFI project work through activities such as conducting case studies and assisting in pilot project initiation and implementation. Support for these publications is generously provided by the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership.
