Strengthening Capacity For Data-Driven Decisionmaking
This presentation at the conference "Moving the Needle: Using Data to Improve Population Outcomes" sponsored by Governing magazine and the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
How well is your community positioned to use data to develop and evaluate your strategies? In this presentation, we describe the types of data, supports, and connections that governments and communities need to make decisions at the local and state level. Using examples from the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP), the presentations gives examples of how data has been used across the country to improve policies and practices in education, health, housing and human services.
