Abstract

The goal of this guide is to help you harness the power of data to create effective “data-driven” strategies and put you on the path to becoming data experts who can access, analyze, interpret, and use data to build community and create strong strategies to help everyone in your community become healthier. To make this happen, you’ll be encouraged to become not just good data collectors and analysts, but strong critical thinkers about the data you uncover, how it can be interpreted, and how it can be used to create positive outcomes for the many groups that make up your community, rather than a source for division, perpetuation of stereotypes and myths, and unequal distribution of resources.
