Research Datasets
Body

Research datasets can be provided using the integrated data system.  The integrated data system contains information about the use of programs and services by clients of state health and human service agencies as well as non-profit and private entities.  The integrated data system enables the analysis of services and crossover by clients among these entities.  Release of information is governed by the originating entity and each entity has its own application process.  Requests for linked data or a single data system must be approved by entities of interest.  For more information on available data sources and the integrated data system, click here: https://rfa.sc.gov/data-services/integration
