Increasing Data Utilization through USAID Data Portals

Description

Data is a critical input for many types of decisions at USAID. It is also key for communicating to stakeholders, such as host country counterparts, other USG colleagues and the public at large. USAID goes to great lengths to ensure that data collected is used, whether to inform activity implementation, make strategy adjustments in mission portfolio reviews, in headquarters-based sector reviews and processes, in annual reporting to Congress, or for potential reanalysis later by USAID staff or members of the public.
