Administrative Data for Social Impact in Canada: Progress Report
December 17, 2021
Data can be a valuable tool for evidence-based decision making in the social sector. Nonprofits can use data to evaluate the impact of their interventions, understand the needs of beneficiary groups, support their advocacy efforts with evidence, and strategically plan their programs. Despite the immense potential of data to support the work of nonprofits, many nonprofits are working with data that are incomplete, inaccurate, or challenging to track over time. This document serves as a summary of activities, progress, and learnings from a multi-stakeholder coalition of Canadian advocacy groups, nonprofit service providers, and funders. From Powered By Data.
