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 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.

It gives users consistent terms for accessing and using government data, making it easier to combine, integrate, and share data from multiple providers across Canada. This is a major step towards encouraging wider use of open data and delivering more value to the public. Vancouver joins the Government of Canada, Provinces of BC, Alberta, and Ontario, and the cities of Nanaimo, Edmonton, and Toronto in adopting the OGL.

The present study provides estimates of the economic and social costs of firearm-related crime in Canada. In this study, firearm-related crime is defined as crime committed with a firearm present or used during the commission of an offence, of which all are considered violent crimes. The impact of firearm-related crime can be both wide-ranging and long-lasting as it directs a society's resources to address the problem and causes unquantifiable pain and suffering to victims and their family members. Examining the financial impact is not a new approach in understanding crime. An understanding of the economic costs of crime can lead to important insights and policy decisions, both in terms of criminal justice policy and in terms of other social problems that compete with crime for government funding and resources.
