Over the past decade, DataSpark has worked with Rhode Island state, local, and nonprofit entities to create the RI DataHUB - a statewide longitudinal data system (SLDS) that links information from birth through adulthood. As demand for data access has increased and the need for a more robust and accessible solution has emerged, so the RI DataHUB was extended to incorporate a public-facing, research-oriented data aggregation tool that allows users to create their own indicators. The Aggregator allows state agencies, non-profit organizations, and other data researchers to easily, quickly, and safely query and aggregate administrative data in a secure and anonymized environment. From this presentation, participants will learn what the aggregator tool is, how it was built, technical and non-technical challenges we encountered, and what you may need to consider if you want to build a similar tool.
