Data have the power to transform the way we see the world, helping us identify health disparities and drive policy change. The Data in Action section of kidsdata.org provides tips and tools for creating data-driven change, as well as success stories of how the Kidsdata community is using data to support children’s health and well-being.
Learn how to leverage data to create meaningful change. Three helpful tools:

- Five Criteria for Good Data: Use these criteria to determine the best data to support your work
- Telling Your Best Data Story: Learn how to select the best visualization for your report, presentation, proposal or advocacy efforts
Data can be used to advocate for polices and legislation, assess community needs, strengthen grant proposals, and much more. Read examples of how the Kidsdata community is using data for action, from analyzing bills in the California Legislature to supporting county-wide initiatives and demonstrating the need for children’s health programs in local communities.
