Building the Capacity of Mid-Size U.S. Cities to Better Use Data and Evidence

Results for America is helping policymakers act on evidence and data through tools, resources, coaching and partnerships that provide technical assistance. Results for America’s What Works Cities Initiative has stimulated the largest movement of cities and city leaders across the country sharing lessons and best practices to improve the effectiveness of government. The initiative has educated 90 U.S. Mayors on how to better use data and evidence to improve services, and has engaged over 1,700 city employees on performance management, analytics, and other leading practices. What Works Cities has also produced 130 resources that cities around the world are using to improve their practices.
