Learn practical data analysis skills, tailor-made exclusively for government employees

There exists a massive opportunity to improve society using government data.

By learning practical data analysis skills through the Socrata Data Academy, public servants can amplify their impact in policy creation and service delivery with data-informed decision making.

In partnership with the Socrata Foundation, the Socrata Data Academy teaches program leaders and government information workers how to analyze data and proficiently use modern data analysis technologies. This allows public servants to be more efficient and impactful in their day-to-day work which supports their agencies’ key programs and missions.
