Insights from our open M&E data
Often, reporting indicator data enables us to forget to dig deeper into the numbers to surface latent insights. By looking at disaggregated data, we can share some unique insights that can inform our program and help others identify areas for further exploration or investment.

This data is published as a beta dataset – a “betaset” – meaning its content is not official but meant to spark discussion and even to invite others to find holes or faults in the data, so we can improve.

Insight #1: People working at the middle levels of organization report the strongest evidence of impact.
After working with us, mid-level practitioners report the most positive change in their perceptions about how data can support their work, when compared to senior and support staff. This might be because mid-level positions are those who are both hands-on with data while having some visibility into decision-making within their organization.
(Use the arrows to navigate through four different metrics. The first three are about perceived value of data, while the last is about data literacy.)
Insight #2: Youth respond differently to our programming than older people do.
Insight #3: Location and gender play a role.
After working with Data Zetu, more women than men report an increase in their perceived value of data in rural, semi-urban, and urgan areas. Notably, the difference is most dramatic in semi-urban areas like Mbeya District Council.

This is an experimental product of Data Zetu. The data from April 2018, but quality assurance for the data powering this dashboard is ongoing. This message will be removed once the data is safe for interpretation and re-use. If you would like to explore more recent data, download our open impact dataset.
DISCLAIMER: The data and insights presented here are not necessarily statistically representative and are not published as official statistics. Rather, they represent a small subsection of the population who have interacted with Data Zetu activities and voluntarily provided their feedback to inform our impact monitoring efforts.
