New sources of “big” data–including call detail records, satellites, and remote sensing networks–are changing the landscape of global development. These sources are particularly useful to researchers and decision-makers as they provide data at a much higher frequency and lower marginal cost than traditional surveys, opening up a host of new measurement opportunities. While big data and survey data can each be useful on their own, hybrid approaches that enrich big data with survey data enable exciting new analytical opportunities.
On Tuesday, March 31st, 2020, CEGA will partner with the World Bank’s Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) group and Innovations in Big Data Analytics to hold our 6th annual “Measuring Development” Conference in Washington, D.C. The event will showcase the myriad ways in which survey data and “big” data can be integrated to improve the design, targeting, and evaluation of global development interventions. We will further discuss related challenges including data interoperability, privacy and confidentiality, algorithmic bias, and other topics.

The share of the extreme poor living in areas affected by fragility, conflict, and violence is expected to rise to nearly 50% by 2030, severely hampering global development efforts. Violent conflict has spiked dramatically since 2010, with trends such as climate change, rising inequality,...
The 2nd Annual Symposium on Geospatial Analysis for International Development (Geo4Dev) will focus on geospatial research that addresses climate- and conflict-driven migration and humanitarian response. This includes observation and modeling of migration and human settlement patterns (in response...
