Making Data Portals work for SDGs: A view on deployment, design and technology

The paper takes a critical eye to the use and sustainability of data portal creation and usage in National Statistical Offices and their role in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), using quantitative methods to evaluate data dissemination tactics and qualitative research to review the decision making processes behind the creation of the data portals, using Subsaharan African countries as case studies. Much space is given to four key recommendations for NSOs and international organizations to harmonize data portal practices. Finally, the paper also provides references for further reading on major data portals currently in use.
