How to build a data-driven public service: Inclusive data practices
May 25, 2022
In an increasingly interconnected and data-driven world, data skills are becoming absolutely essential for all public servants, across all countries, departments, and roles.
Apolitical’s second annual virtual conference was designed to help policymakers supercharge their data skills in the public service and to help build more data-driven governments around the world.
At a session on Inclusive Data Practices, AidData's Director of Policy Analysis Samantha Custer presented on research from AidData's Listening to Leaders program, about how low- and middle-income country leaders, national statistical offices, and civil society organizations are using data and evidence in decision making, barriers to progress, and opportunities for growth.
