Background

The Brown School Evaluation Center collaborated with Missouri ZIP Health Rankings to develop a logic model and evaluation plan to guide in program planning and evaluation efforts, as well as an end-user survey of the prototype data display platform. The Center also assisted with evaluation-related components of a proposal Missouri ZIP Health Rankings planned to develop for the expansion of its work.
