The Social Assets and Vulnerabilities Indicators (SAVI) Community Information System is one the nation’s largest spatially-enabled systems of its type, providing detailed, geographically precise information needed to make data-informed decisions. SAVI contains over 10,000 data items about the social, physical, and economic conditions of Central Indiana communities from counties to neighborhoods and census tracts, as well as information on thousands of non-profit and community-based organizations and programs. SAVI is a donor-supported, web-based system that allows users to create custom maps, graphs, charts, and data profiles of over 2,000 Central Indiana communities.
SAVI helps organizations and researchers make data-informed decisions by 1) providing reliable data about Central Indiana communities, 2) creating actionable information, 3) developing tools for data analysis, and 4) building capacity, especially for nonprofit and community-based organizations, to use data effectively.
