Too often, the poorest, most vulnerable people are invisible in data, exacerbating their marginalization further. Yet, today, we are producing more data than ever before. If brought together in new ways, existing data could make marginalized people’s multifaceted lives and needs more visible.
This World Data Forum 2020 session, hosted by the Inclusive Data Charter, examines a range of creative approaches to getting, using, and sharing inclusive data: from national statistical offices integrating administrative data sources to understand marginalized people’s needs, to young people with disabilities generating new data to inform policy.
The United Kingdom Office for National Statistics, the Institute for Global Homelessness, Leonard Cheshire and the United Nations Refugee Agency all presented.
