The Data Value Chain: Moving from Production to Impact

The data value chain describes the evolution of data from collection to analysis, dissemination, and the final impact of data on decision making. While the value chain can be applied to all types of data, it may be particularly useful for a better understanding of the gaps in gender data.

This paper describes a value chain for data that are usually described as official statistics, produced by governments or other public agencies. At each stage the authors include examples of important, value-adding activities. The examples come from desk research on the potential impact of gender data.

Paper prepared by Open Data Watch for Data2X, a UN Foundation-based alliance for  improving the quality, availability, and use of gender data to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide.
