Using data

Use your data to make decisions that will improve how you work

When we talk about using data, we usually mean drawing on insights to make decisions that will improve your programme or service. But it’s also important to use data appropriately and responsibly by storing it securely, protecting peoples’ confidentiality and communicating the findings faithfully. The pages below talk you through each aspect.


Data Diagnostic

The data diagnostic asks 10 multiple choice questions about what your programme or service is, how it works and who it targets. It then provides a tailored report that discusses what kind of data you should consider collecting and how.
