B School for Public Policy
Advancing Evidence-Based Social Policies through Intergovernmental Data Sharing Partnerships
Seminar by Professor Dennis Culhane
This event has been rescheduled for Friday, April 6.
There is increasingly broad recognition that policymaking can be done more effectively when decisions regarding support for public programs are made strategically, based on the rigorous analysis of evidence. In several key areas of social policy, including housing and education, such evidence-based policymaking at the federal level needs to rely on data collected and evaluated at the state and local levels. This seminar will help staffers better understand how the state and local evidence base is gathered and how that base can inform their own work.
