Five States Lead the Way in Evidence-Based Policymaking

A report from the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative found that although most states are doing some sort of evidence-based policymaking, Connecticut, Minnesota, Oregon, Utah and Washington are leading the way. The report measured state engagement with evidence-based policymaking across 4 policy domains: behavioral health, child welfare, criminal justice, and juvenile justice.
