The DNA of a Responsive, Data-Driven Government
Evidence-based governing and citizen-responsive services are essential for today’s state and local officials. We demand from our leaders informed decisions that increase cost-effectiveness and enhance public life. Across the country, governments are increasingly harnessing data and emphasizing performance to achieve these goals, while partnering with each other and the private sector to better understand and apply the available information. Through conversations with leaders and expert practitioners, Route Fifty explored the data-centric strategies and tactics used to inform decision-making, enhance the citizen experience with government services, and increase community engagement.
