    While data analytics presents new opportunities to test programs for efficacy and efficiencies, they also highlight a need for improved datasets and underscore the importance of research-practitioner partnerships. This session presented experimental research findings from studies in New York City and the state of Illinois that have used new methodologies and unique data sets to link administrative data across agencies, and the value of using predictive analytics to forecast future social outcomes. This panel, moderated by Maryanne Schretzman (NYC Center for Innovation through Data Intelligence), also discussed issues involved in linking administrative data. Various methodologies were used across the presentations. (Author introduction)
