An Understanding of Competitive Intelligence
This article on Wikipedia provides some understanding of the strategy of "competitive intelligence". One section states "Marketing research is a tactical, methods-driven field that consists mainly of neutral primary research that draws on customer data in the form of beliefs and perceptions as gathered through surveys or focus groups, and is analyzed through the application of statistical research techniques. In contrast, Competitive Intelligence, CI,  typically draws on a wider variety (i.e., both primary and secondary) of sources, from a wider range of stakeholders (e.g., suppliers, competitors, distributors, substitutes, media, and so on), and seeks not just to answer existing questions but also to raise new ones and to guide action."

Annenberg Network of Networks
From the web site: "ANN, the Annenberg Network.supports a variety of efforts designed to develop social network theory. One key strategy to developing new theory is the exploration of information-based communication networks that are the foundation of a new social form called the network society. Another useful approach takes the form of exploring multiple existing social theories to identify new implications for social networks that accrue from combining multiple theories at multiple levels. A third technique is to apply a theory developed to explain other phenomena to information and communication networks, as in the case of evolutionary theory. ANN also undertakes empirical research projects to test these network theories."

Build Initiative - data indicators - 50 state chart book
From the web site: "For planning and policy purposes, state leaders need accurate information about the well-being of their youngest children and the services being provided to them. This information should include data pertaining to the population of children in the states as a whole and to different racial and ethnic groups. While available information can not sufficiently answer all questions state leaders may ask, administrative data sets, national surveys and census data provide a basis for understanding the current well-being of young children across health, social, developmental and economic realms – and for examining disparities that exist by race, ethnicity and income level.

The Fifty State Chart Book provides the available information compiled in a way that enables comparisons, by race, ethnicity and income level, both within and across states, of differences and disparities in well-being, service use and environmental conditions. The nineteen indicators in the Chart Book span various domains of well-being and offer a holistic picture of how children from different racial and ethnic backgrounds are faring."
