​​​​​​​From the report: “Policymakers are increasingly interested in using data and evaluations to improve the results of federal programs. In 2016, Congress created the bipartisan Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking, charged with developing recommendations to support analysis, research, and evaluation of government programs. The Commission’s 2017 report included recommendations in three areas: improving access to data, strengthening privacy protections, and improving agency evidence-building capacity in federal agencies.”
