Step Five: Collect and Analyze Data

Once data have been collected, they need to be analyzed. Data should clearly demonstrate whether or not a program met its objectives. Since most juvenile justice programs are trying to change attitudes and/or behaviors, data analysis usually focuses on:

  • Whether a change occurred.
  • How much change occurred.
  • Whether or not a negative behavior was prevented.
  • Any changes to the program structure or operation itself.
  • Other unexpected changes that may affect the process or outcomes.
