2016: A Year of Data-Driven Confusion

Zara Rahman

D&S fellow Zara Rahman details the year’s ‘data-driven confusion’ and contends for a responsible data approach, both to practice and comprehension.

We must take a responsible data approach to advocacy – address gaps in literacy proactively, be rigorous in our methods, and maintain credibility, especially on important issues. Nowadays, thanks to the speed and amplification of sources afforded to us via technology, analyses and “facts” will spread faster than before. Understanding the critical limitations of data and information is going to become ever more important in years to come.
