Strengthening Analytics in Government Agencies
This toolkit, a product from the TANF Data Innovation project, offers practical guidance to agencies on how to create a culture of evidence as a routine part of government operations. The material included was sourced from interviews with practitioners who have successfully built sustainable data use into their everyday practices. The tools were developed to help agencies build the culture and infrastructure needed to apply data analysis routinely, effectively, and accurately. While it was initially developed for State TANF agencies, many strategies may be useful for individuals in a range of agencies, where the challenges and impact are similar.
