This blog post follows up on a previous post about Everyone Counts, a new initiative founded by World Vision, CARE International and Kwantu. The initiative aims to give marginalised citizens a voice in relation to their satisfaction with public services. You can read the previous post here.
I ended the last post posing three key technical challenges that Everyone Counts need to overcome. These are:
Comparability: how can we standardise and compare data coming from different organisations, while still allowing for contextual variations?
Quality of data: how can we ensure that data are of high quality and have enough credibility to be taken seriously?
Getting to scale: how can we take data from the community level up to the national level, aggregating data to build the bigger picture?
This post will share thinking on how we aim to tackle these challenges.
