Here’s what the subnational data revolution looks like

Data Zetu is driven to produce data use stories—tangible examples of local communities and governments using data to inform better decision-making, particularly to improve health, economic growth, and gender outcomes.

Read some of these use stories below. Several were captured at the December 2017 Data Tamasha in a booklet that captured use stories from Data Zetu as well as its sister projects—view it here.
