In this report, the American Institutes for Research (AIR), with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, developed five guiding principles to inform measurement that effectively aligns systems’ actions with the needs and priorities of the communities those systems serve, particularly communities that historically have been harmed the most by inequities. These principles, and accompanying guidance for putting them into practice, intend to show how community members, system leaders, service providers, and policymakers actively engaged in cross-systems efforts can use shared measurement as a tool to align decisions, policies, and practices toward equitable health and well-being.
