AISP Network: Charlotte Regional Data Trust

About the Work

The Charlotte Regional Data Trust (formerly the Institute for Social Capital) is a signature research initiative of the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute. The Data Trust uses integrated administrative data to increase the community’s capacity for data-informed decision-making and foster university research that impacts the community and deepens understanding of complex community issues.

By linking data across agencies, sectors, and programs, the Data Trust integrated data system allows community stakeholders to understand challenges and opportunities beyond typical service silos.

Charlotte Regional Data Trust is hosted by UNC Charlotte Urban Institute.
