Data Collection

Identifying National Outcome Measures (NOMs), Community Outcome Measures (COMs), (e.g., consumption, consequence, & intervening variables) that already exist is a first step to helping determine local issues of relevance and ensure outcomes are measurable. It can also be important to review local quantitative collection efforts for scope, frequency, & tools used (e.g., OHYES!, YRBS, REACH, PRIDE). It can also be helpful to partner with other agencies to collect data which may require MOUs or other necessary measures and ensure access to data. The pages below detail concrete steps to achieving these goals:
