Youth programs collect a great deal of data on everything from program quality to participant demographics to youth outcomes. However many programs struggle to translate that data into action. Dabbling in the Data is designed to address this issue.
Subtitled A Hands-On Guide to Participatory Data Analysis, this resource from Public Profit is designed to help program teams make sense of evaluation data and use that data to make change. Dabbling in the Data provides detailed instructions on 15 collaborative activities organized into five sections: distribution, change over time, contribution, categories, and communicating findings.
