The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) is the latest agency to join the DataOhio Portal (DOP). With the addition of seven new DODD datasets, the DataOhio Portal now hosts eight agencies and 227 datasets.
The DataOhio Portal is a public-facing portal that provides datasets and interactive visualizations to inform data-driven decision making for state agencies and their partners. The DataOhio Portal is a first of its kind state technology, enabling data collaboration and sharing while also featuring enhanced security and privacy.
The user-friendly DataOhio Portal contains several datasets and data visualizations collected from Ohio’s county boards of developmental disabilities and Council of Governments, as well as Providers, to deliver transparency and value across the state. Currently, the portal contains Ohio’s system of Developmental Disability related data on topics such as general demographics of active participants, use of assistive technology and remote supports, Adult Day services, DODD Home and Community Based Waiver Information, and statewide wait-list information.
These seven new datasets and visualizations will increase the information available to the public, stakeholders, and state leaders as they determine which programs are likely to produce the greatest benefits for the Ohio’s citizens with disabilities, the people that care for them, and the communities they live in.
Users can access these datasets and visualizations under “Recent Datasets” or by filtering the Data Catalog by “Agency > Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities” at
data.ohio.gov. A summary of datasets is provided below.
