Panel: Understanding and Measuring Data Use

Open Data Watch, AidData, and PARIS21 have collaborated to address these needs in an exciting two-part research study, with financial support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

The companion report Measuring Data Use presents an analysis of data portal web traffic, which provides an example for analyzing web traffic on NSO websites and data portals, along with recommendations for improving the collection of these data.

An engaging discussion will be held on December 6, 2018 to focus on the report’s findings and implications of the future of the official statistics for sustainable development. 

Open Data Watch, AidData, and PARIS21 want to hear reactions from leaders that fund, produce, promote and use of official statistics in their works. 

Location: OpenGov Hub, 1110 Vermont Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC 20005
