SAVI (www.savi.org) is a free resource to help you make data-informed decisions.  It provides data about Central Indiana communities, tools to analyze and visualize the data, and training to build your capacity to use it effectively.

The SAVI Community Information System is the nation’s largest spatially-enabled system of its type, providing local organizations, researchers, and involved citizens with the detailed, geographically precise information needed to make well-informed decisions.  SAVI contains a wealth of free data 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, interactive system that allows users to create custom maps, graphs, charts, and data profiles of over 2,000 Central Indiana communities.

SAVI is created and managed by The Polis Center, a center in the IU School of Liberal Arts at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, for the United Way of Central Indiana, as community trustee.

By the way, SAVI stands for Social Assets and Vulnerabilities Indicators.
