Pro-DATA is a free resource cre­at­ed by the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion to sup­port data-dri­ven deci­sion-mak­ing and data trans­paren­cy in youth jus­tice at the local and state lev­els. This online tool is open to all juris­dic­tions by request.

Pro-DATA is an appli­ca­tion for juris­dic­tions to gath­er and visu­al­ize their youth jus­tice data on more than 100 mea­sures, with the option to add unlim­it­ed addi­tion­al mea­sures to address local pri­or­i­ties. The application’s chart-mak­ing capa­bil­i­ty helps users iden­ti­fy oppor­tu­ni­ties for improve­ment and track what inter­ven­tions work — and don’t work, and for which groups of youth. The dash­board lets users see pat­terns for all youth and then dive deep­er into pat­terns by race and eth­nic­i­ty, among oth­er char­ac­ter­is­tics. With­out the deep­er dive, stake­hold­ers might miss that racial groups fre­quent­ly have dif­fer­ent out­comes, often with stronger gains for white youth than youth of color.
