Checklist: Efficiencies and Best Practices in Data Gathering

Use this checklist to ensure you're gathering data in the most useful way for your communities:

  1. Data should help you answer multiple components of your projects or show progress toward multiple indicators

  2. You should always be respectful of people's time, so try and make your monitoring visits multi-purpose too

  3. Consistently implement your data collection, validation, and analysis best practices

  4. Use content mapping and content mining questions to help plan the flow and script of interviews or focus groups
