First Place Featured in “Moneyball for Government”

Tags: Data Use First Place in the Spotlight

First Place for Youth is thrilled to be featured as an exemplar of effective data use in Moneyball for Government. Written by a bipartisan group of current and former federal government leaders and advisors, this book makes the case for shifting how government decisionmaking happens. The authors propose that data, evidence, and evaluation should be the driving forces behind policy and funding.

You can learn more about the Moneyball for Government movement at their website, and the book is available to purchase at
