Having the Data Is Not Enough: Communicating Information to Support Evidence-Based Decision Making

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center
Debra Miller, Surface Transportation Board, presiding
Sponsored by Task Force on Data for Decisions and Performance Measures

Transportation agencies are focusing more keenly on providing data and information to support evidence-based decision making, but the evidence can get lost if information is not communicated clearly and succinctly to key political and policy decision makers. The purpose of this workshop is to explore best practices to ensure effective ways to communicate data and information to decision makers through examples and participant discussions.
