The What Works Cities

What Works Cities are located in every region of the United States and in 37 states. They include cities just getting started with data and evidence and other cities that are more advanced and seeking to expand their "what works" practice. All have publicly committed to enhance their use of data and evidence to improve services, inform local decision making and engage residents. By adopting the WWC Standard, they are a part of a national network of local governments committed to using data to improve performance and results that make their residents’ lives better.
