South African Case Study: DataFirst Open African Research Data Repository.pdf

Version 2

    Most Open African Data repositories do not provide (ii) data at a granular level or (ii) data that is quality assured, or (ii) data that is well-described. Thus, data from these sites is only marginally useful for sound policy research. Our repository ensures discovery of and open access to well-documented African government microdata and microdata from African research institutions to support data-intensive African policy research.
