How to submit a request for cross-agency data & datasets

If your needs extend beyond what we provide in our data products, individuals and organizations seeking data are encouraged to submit a data request. 

  • Past requests have involved information to support program evaluation, strategic planning, grant reporting, research papers, and more. 
  • All data requests will be vetted for appropriateness and potential benefits to DXP Partners, schools, educators, policymakers, and/or researchers.
  • Requests must be for cross-agency data (involving more than one agency). For single agency requests, please contact our partners to request data directly from them.
    • Agencies the DXP has data available for: Hawai‘i State Department of Education, University of Hawai‘i & Department of Labor and Industrial Relations
Aggregate Data
(Tables/Counts of Students)
De-Identified, Individual-Level Data
Data with small counts suppressed to protect students from being identified. Aggregate data generally answer more straightforward questions such as “What is the demographic breakdown of students who participated in dual credit courses?”.

Aggregate Request Form & Process

Datasets with direct identifiers (e.g., names) removed. Additional controls/forms are required to ensure the data are adequately protected in compliance with FERPA. De-identified datasets are generally used to examine more complicated evaluations/research. Requestors must follow all DXP suppression rules for any presentations, papers, reports, etc. produced from the data set to protect students from being identified. Dataset must be certified as destroyed at the end of project.
