Evidence-to-Impact Collaborative

Leading scientific impact through collaboration between practitioner, researcher, and policymaker communities

Transforming the use of research evidence in decision-making through cross-system collaboration for the optimization of social investments.

The Evidence-to-Impact Collaborative (EIC) is a research center and information hub for the science of using social science – we aim to improve the data, methods, and processes related to research, the dissemination of evidence, and to understand the impacts of the use of research evidence on societal well-being. We leverage our expertise in administrative data, program evaluation, and researcher-policymaker relationships for social investment optimization.

At a time when misinformation threatens our very freedoms, the role of science has never been more important. At the EIC, we work to support the use of research in government, practice and industry for all types of decision making. In this manner, we seek to build a healthier, stronger and more just society for all.”

The Results First Clearinghouse Database

An interactive data visualization resource

An easy way to access and understand the evidence base for programs in social policy areas such as behavioral health, criminal justice, education, and public health. More specifically, it allows users to see if there have been rigorous evaluations of a program and, if so, to review information on the program’s effectiveness.

clearing-house-screen-shots
  • Information on the effectiveness of social policy programs from nine national clearinghouses

  • Easily access and understand the evidence base for a variety of programs

  • Quickly see where each program falls on a spectrum from negative impact to positive impact

  • Color-coding of distinct rating systems
