The Youth Data Archive (YDA), a project of the John W. Gardner Center at Stanford University, provides integrated data from public and private youth-serving organizations in order to inform analyses at the individual, program-setting, and community levels. The overarching theory of change behind the YDA posits that different and better information about the social settings and resources available to youth — and their associated outcomes — will foster better choices and decisions about how to improve those individual and collective settings. This chapter reviews the four tenets of the societal sector framework that represent the building blocks of this theory of change, and then discusses the role of data integration to measure settings and contexts, as well as to build relationships across agencies. The progress to date, and challenges in developing the YDA in three communities, are described.
