Using Linked Data to Advance Evidence-Based Policy Making:

Helping Projects Utilize the U.S. Census Bureau Linkage Infrastructure

 

Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau, is pleased to announce the Request for Proposals (RFP) Using Linked Data to Advance Evidence-Based Policy Making: Helping Projects Utilize the U.S. Census Bureau Linkage Infrastructure. This initiative aims to conduct high-impact research projects of policies and interventions by demonstrating innovative strategies for linking across programs and levels of government to advance evidence-based policymaking. The project is supported by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.

 

The RFP solicits research and evaluation proposals to serve as pilot studies exploring long-term outcomes of policies and interventions to inform decision makers who can improve public policies and programs. Through the RFP, we seek to identify exciting, ready-to-implement pilots that bring in data and demonstrate ways to optimize the Census Bureau linkage infrastructure to provide policy-relevant insights on Federal programs, as well as to develop an inventory of compelling use cases for future projects. We hope these projects will inform decisions by the Evidence-Based Policymaking Commission, the Administration, and Congress, particularly regarding expansion of the Census Bureau infrastructure to support more high-quality evaluation and programmatic research.

 

Proposal submissions are due 11:59 p.m. Central Time on September 20, 2016.

Applicants will be notified of selection decisions by November 2016.
