The data diagnostic asks 10 quick questions about what your programme or service is, who it targets, and whether any research exists to support your approach. It then creates a report that includes both general advice and tailored information about what kind of data you could consider collecting and how.
If you're already collecting data, the questionnaire will act as a 'health check'. If you’re collecting for the first time, it will help you get started.
The diagnostic is most suited to organisations delivering programmes or services, rather than campaigning or infrastructure organisations.
The data diagnostic works best if you think about ONE programme or service as you answer the questions. You can then repeat it for other programmes or services. There are no right or wrong answers and it should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
