Analysis for policy: evidence-based policy in practice

http://www.gsr.gov.uk/downloads/resources/pu256_160407.pdf

This report presents findings from an investigation into the use of evidence-based policy in practice. It is based on interviews and discussion groups with policy makers from 10 Whitehall departments and the devolved administrations of the Scottish Executive and the Welsh Assembly Government. In total, 42 policy makers, in a range of middle management and senior civil service positions, took part.
It was conducted to gauge the extent to which the use of robust, research evidence is embedded within day-to-day policy making and policy delivery, and to understand the reasons why effective use of evidence in government decision making continues to present such a challenge. It provides a snapshot of current practices within government departments.
