Overview
Results for America is helping policymakers at all levels of government harness the power of evidence and data to solve the world’s greatest challenges.

Over the next three years, Results for America is working to: (a) establish widely accepted "standards of excellence" for evidence-informed policymaking at all levels of government; (b) secure commitments and support for evidence-informed policymaking from the majority of influential policymakers; and (c) develop examples of successful implementation of evidence-informed policymaking across social issues and levels of government.
