In this discussion, speakers discuss the creation of the National Secure Data Service (NSDS), and what it could mean for the future of evidence-informed policymaking. The NSDS was created by legislation as a pilot project with the ability to scale. It will allow some federal data to be combined temporarily in a privacy-protected environment, substantially improving the national capability for data analytics, program evaluation, and evidence-building activities.
