Government and non-governmental organizations dealing with the delivery of social services have been collecting data for some time. There has been little progress in some areas and they realize that more measurements need to be taken as well as an analysis of how effectively services are delivered - what works and what doesn't. This presentation will discuss three cases of dealing with social problems in Western New York and what is needed in terms of data and analysis.
