MEASURE Evaluation Specialist Discusses Challenges Of Measuring Data Use In Decision-Making

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: What is data use anyway?
In a guest blog post, Michelle Li, data use specialist with the MEASURE Evaluation at Palladium, discusses the challenges of conceptualizing and measuring data use “in strategic planning, policymaking, program planning and management, advocacy, or delivering services,” highlighting a recent MEASURE Evaluation report. Li writes, “With a focus on rigorously defining and measuring data use, we work to strengthen the evidence base to aid understanding which interventions work and which don’t work, why that is, and then point a way forward to produce better data for better health” (9/11).
