Mayor Bill de Blasio is proud to release the first comprehensive evaluation of IDNYC, New York City’s municipal identification program and the largest program of its kind in the country. This independent study, conducted by Westat and Metis Associates, examines aspects of the program that have been successful as well as areas in which the program can grow. This evaluation covers the first year and a half of the IDNYC program, from January 2015 through June 2016. The evaluation synthesizes data drawn from 39 focus groups, several dozen individual interviews with community leaders and program partners, survey responses from more than 77,000 cardholders, and administrative data. We invite you to read the study!
