How much development data is enough? | Jordan Times

How much development data is enough? | Jordan Times: "his data revolution offers enormous potential for improving decision making at every level — from the local farmer to world-spanning development organisations.
But gathering data is not enough. 
The information must also be managed and evaluated — and doing this properly can be far more complicated and expensive than the effort to collect it.
If the decisions to be improved are not first properly identified and analysed, there is a high risk that much of the collection effort could be wasted or misdirected.
This conclusion is itself based on empirical analysis. "
