Evidence-Based Social Programs

pew-logoTo assist policymakers at all levels of government in identifying such programs and making data-driven budget decisions, the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative has created the Results First Clearinghouse Database.

This one-stop online resource provides policymakers with an easy way to find information on the effectiveness of various interventions as rated by nine national research clearinghouses.

To address the challenges posed by the existence of multiple clearinghouses, the Results First Clearinghouse Database has compiled information from several separate clearinghouses in one place, reconciled the different rating systems and vocabularies, and provided the data in a clear, accessible format. Users can search the database by keyword or program name and further narrow that search by categories, settings, rating colors, and clearinghouses.

Check out the FAQ section for more information and the Key Uses for the Results First Clearinghouse Database to learn about ways to apply information from the database.
