Ethics and Experience
Evident Change has been using predictive analytics to help improve outcomes for children and families for over 25 years. We are strong proponents of using this methodology in an ethical, transparent, and effective way. The materials on this page describe the multitude of projects we have done with predictive analytics, as well as answering the questions we believe human services and justice agencies should be asking to ensure that families’ civil liberties are protected and that they receive fair, equitable, and appropriate intervention. For more information on Evident Change’s expertise in predictive analytics, contact Chris Scharenbroch, Director of Analytics, at (800) 306-6223.
