Data, evidence and evaluation capacity-building

  • 2015

Governments achieve better outcomes for citizens if they can use evidence and data effectively.

Since 2015, BIT North America has worked with 67 cities across the United States to run 120 randomised trials, thanks to the What Works Cities programme, funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies. In doing so, we have built the capacity of these cities to make better, more evidence-based decisions, and understand the impact of their choices.

Building on this work, several cities have now started their own teams based on the BIT model, embedding this approach sustainably for the future.
