Evaluation Review, v24 n1 p92-101 Feb 2000
Evaluated the accuracy of three methods used to obtain policy data: (1) government surveys; (2) secondary sources; and (3) historical legal research. Findings from a study of changes in state legislation show legal research to be most accurate for established laws, but multistage data best for recent laws. (SLD)
