Over the last decade, a major trend in government management has involved the increased use of data by government executives. The “data” movement has many names. In Robert Behn’new book, The PerformanceStat Potential, “PerformanceStat” refers to the many “Stat” programs initiated after the New York City Police Department successfully launched CompStat in the 1990s. Others use the term “analytics” to capture the use of data.
