Do you live in a “geek city”?

34
"Geek Cities: How Smarter Use of Data and Evidence Can Improve Lives", a paper from Results for America and The Bridgespan Group, highlights some of the top cities using evidence and data to get better results for citizens. The paper includes information on how cities like London, Baltimore, and Denver are measuring what works, building the evidence base, investing in what works, and budgeting for what works. Based on lessons observed in these cities, the authors make recommendations for city leaders, as well as for federal, state, and philanthropic partners, who want to increase the use of data and evidence to “spur urban innovation”.
