The Immunize Kansas Kids coalition was established to increase the number of Kansas children receiving timely vaccinations.
JBA evaluated and supported the coalition’s efforts to identify and address barriers to immunization.

- Measurement indicators
- Data sources
- Analytic design
- Data collection methods and procedures
- Sample sizes
- Human and technological resource requirements
