  13. 13. Citizens want results, not data. With the exception of a few policy wonks or data geeks, citizens who get involved in community measurement are not primarily interested in data. They are interested in improving conditions they care about in their community — in getting results that matter. They participate because they expect — or hope — that they can use data on community conditions or service performance to influence change. To them, information is a means to an end, not an end in itself. […] When used well, the data can extend citizens’ reach in their efforts to improve results in their communities. Epstein, Paul D., Paul M. Coates, and Lyle D. Wray. 2005.
