With the growth of technological capabilities that allow government agencies to organize, link, and analyze a large amount of data across various sources, an important resource—administrative data—can be used to change the way that the United States designs and implements public policies. 

This volume of The ANNALS outlines the infrastructures that will need to be built to make sure data providers and empirical researchers can best serve national policy needs. The volume is organized around three topics: privacy and confidentiality, data providers, and comprehensive strategies.
