How Analytics Enables the Evidenced-Based Policymaking Life Cycle

About this paper

Many governments are keenly aware of the need to base policies on the best available, systematic evidence and rational analysis rather than an inherently political policymaking process that relies on selective evidence or the untested views of individuals or groups. But they must have the right tools to gather, understand and use both internal and external evidence in their policymaking processes. And they must act faster than ever before. To take full advantage of the volume, variety and velocity of data available today – and to make the best possible decisions for its citizens – governments need to embed sophisticated analytics throughout each stage of the policymaking life cycle.
