Data Zetu is an outcome-driven program.

In the long term, we seek that data is more frequently and effectively used for decision-making. But this kind of culture change takes time that will outlast the Data Zetu program.

To lay the foundations for that long-term vision, Data Zetu is driven by five outcomes:

  • Increased positive experiences with using data
  • Improved technical capacity to engage with data
  • Increased availability of data
  • Improved accessibility of data to non-specialists
  • Improved inclusiveness of the data consumer and producer ecosystem

We’ve set 14 indicators to track our progress towards those outcomes. Follow our progress in the table below, but keep in mind: Data Zetu’s impact is measured in more than just numbers. See our data use stories for a deeper understanding of our impact.
