African Census Analysis Project (ACAP) All Users

In the initial phase of ACAP, we created a unique data bank that saved data from the 1970, 1980, and 1990 rounds of census enumerations from destruction, and we developed the Pan-African Census Explorer (PACE).  ACAP continues to be the repository of African Census data. African census micro-data are an invaluable source of information for understanding demographic processes and history in Africa. Over the past decade, ACAP has assembled the largest collection of complete census data in the world. Our expanding data collection currently consists of census micro-data from 55 censuses for 26 African nations. New national censuses are added to the collection on a regular basis. Most African nations and various other regional organizations are collaborating with us in this international effort.

The Pan-African Census Explorer (PACE) will facilitate easy access to census data for demographic and statistical analysis. Eventually, country specific versions of PACE could be available to the government agencies to facilitate easy distribution of the data.

Afrobarometer All Users

Afrobarometer is an independent, non-partisan research project that measures the social, political, and economic atmosphere in Africa.

Afrobarometer surveys are conducted in more than 30 African countries and are repeated on a regular cycle. Because the instrument asks a standard set of questions, countries can be systematically compared. Trends in public attitudes are tracked over time. Results are shared with decision makers, policy advocates, civic educators, journalists, researchers, donors and investors, as well as average Africans who wish to become more informed and active citizens.

AidData: Open Data for International Development All Users

AidData engages in a variety of data collection and value addition activities to publish its ever-expanding suite of data products. Data collection takes place along two distinct product lines: Aggregate Data (or data represented as a single, composite value) and Project-Level Data (or data consisting of distinct, project activities with accompanying project information). AidData's data is sourced from various locations, including but not limited to the OECD-DAC's Creditor Reporting System (CRS), donor systems (such as official data from individual donor governments), and recipient systems (such as Aid Information Management Systems). Value addition activities include (1) activity and purpose coding, (2) geocoding (to produce our expanding repository of sub-national, geospatial research datasets) (3) data curation (the linking, deduplication and presentation of project records gathered from different sources or data collection activities), and (4) data quality assurance (the transformation and verification of data according to standard AidData practice). AidData also collects official project-level data on the development finance activities of non-OECD bilateral and multilateral donors, as well as data on Chinese development finance, collected using AidData's unique Tracking Under-reported Financial Flows (TUFF) methodology.

Arab Barometer All Users

The Arab Barometer was established in 2005 by scholars in the Arab world and the United States.   Leadership was initially provided by the University of Michigan and Princeton University in the U.S. and by universities and research centers in Jordan, Palestine, Morocco, Algeria and Kuwait. In 2010, a partnership was formed with the Arab Reform Initiative (ARI: www.arab-reform.net) in order to expand the project’s scope and range of activities, building off ARI’s regional survey work carried out in 2006-2008.

The Arab Barometer was developed in consultation with the Global Barometer project, a network composed of regional barometers in Latin America, Sub-Saharan, East Asia and South Asia (http://www.globalbarometer.net/).  Like other regional Barometers, the objectives of the Arab Barometer are to produce scientifically reliable data on the politically-relevant attitudes of ordinary citizens, to disseminate and apply survey findings in order to contribute to political reform, and to strengthen institutional capacity for public opinion research.

Data included in the ARDA are submitted by the foremost religion scholars and research centers in the world.

Complex Emergency Database (CE-DAT) All Users

The Complex Emergency Database (CE-DAT) is an international initiative that monitors and evaluates the health status of populations affected by complex emergencies.

CE-DAT is managed by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) and was created in 2003 as an outcome of SMART, an interagency initiative to encourage rational, evidence-driven humanitarian decision-making.

CE-DAT is a database of mortality and malnutrition rates - the most commonly used public health indicators of the severity of a humanitarian crisis. Field agencies use mortality and nutrition indicators to identify and measure the severity of needs in order to prioritize human and financial resources. These indicators have also been shown to be useful in monitoring the extent to which the relief system is meeting the needs of vulnerable populations and thus the overall impact and effectiveness of the relief system.

Today, with over 2,000 surveys and 20,000 health indicators, CE-DAT serves as a unique source of field data for monitoring the health status of conflict-affected populations and for the production of trend analyses, impact briefings and policy recommendations.

Deprivation index, Canada, 2006 All Users

This Canadian deprivation index was created using data from the 2006 census by dissemination area.

There are four versions of the index for the Canadian territory. They cover either Canada as a whole, each region of Canada, certain geographic areas or metropolitan areas. The different tabs allow you to explore each of the versions. Each tab presents a brief description of the version of the index, a map illustrating the distribution of deprivation at the desired level, and multiple tables of statistical data that distribute the Canadian population by age group and by sex for both material and social deprivation.

Each tab also allows users to get information common to all the levels of analysis. First, an equivalence table allows users to link the dissemination area, certain geographic areas and the deprivation indices. A program for SAS assignment is also available so users can merge the material and social deprivation index into administrative files or into their analyses, as long as the files have a 6-digit postal code variable. A municipal code is preferred but not mandatory. A user guide comes with this program. Finally, a series of publications associated with the deprivation index is available.
