Duties and Responsibilities Building a means of integrating databases and visualizing them in an agile and simplified way has become an indispensable resource for applied analyzes aimed at understanding public policies and subsidizing analyses to propose their improvement. In this sense, IPEA has invested permanently, in recent years, in the development of platforms that integrate databases on common themes and, in this way, can be explored with greater analytical potential in applied research and government advice. Currently, in the Directorate of Studies and State Policies, Institutions and Democracy, there are four thematic platforms that are guided by the above principles: - Map of Civil Society Organizations - Atlas of the Brazilian State - Catalog of Public Policies - Transport Atlas - Atlas of Violence Despite varying degrees of data consolidation and the data presentation interface, such platforms still lack actions aimed at organizing data and making them available in a more intuitive way for researchers to research and explore. The professional to be contracted will have as the main activity working on the development of this integration, which consists both in the development of ways to make the data available and in the visual and textual organization of the integrated data. OBJECTIVE: Elaboration and execution of means to integrate and make available data related to the composition of national public bureaucracies, the partnership of non-profit entities with the public power and public policies related to public security. More broadly, the activities developed will allow the construction of a series of data panels that support the understanding of institutional structures, and of the governance of public policies essential to national development. The activities that guide the research activities provided for in this TR are the following: 1) Develop means of extracting integrated data from information platforms of IPEA, in particular the Atlas of the Brazilian State, the Map of Civil Society Organizations, the Transport Atlas and the Violence Atlas; 2) Propose new data modeling to adapt the structure to the new needs of the platforms; 3) Produce documentation of the main bases obtained, their transformations and manipulations; 4) Produce description reports of the main data series available on these platforms, as a means of supporting subsequent analysis. The results will constitute subsidies for dissemination purposes through the following instruments: a) Policy brief; b) Text for Discussion; c) Internal bulletin; d) Publication in a book (collection); e) Presentation at a seminar.
