Making data-based decisions in practice and policy is essential, and often mandated for effective service for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Agencies at the federal, state, and local level collect large amounts for accountability and, in fact, provide public access to parts or all of the data. This provides a wonderful opportunity for early researchers and doctoral students in the I/DD field to utilize the information in developing a line of research and further the practices and policies affecting individuals with I/DD. In this webinar, the presenters discussed their use of large data sets in examining current practices and policies addressing individuals with I/DD.
