The Data Demand and Use Case Studies illustrate instances where data and information have been used in a variety of settings, as well as examples of how interventions have successfully facilitated data demand and changed how information is used within MEASURE Evaluation. It is expected that similar experiences — inside and outside of the project — will eventually be added to these case studies.

For each case study presented in the series, we begin by identifying the “point of entry” for promoting data demand and use interventions. The entry point depends upon understanding how data supply, information demand, and capacities for use all interrelate within a given context.

We then present each element of the data demand and use continuum with evidence from MEASURE Evaluation projects.

  • Data demand describes the information stakeholders are actively and openly requesting
  • Data collection/analysis describes the various methods and tools used to address data and information gaps
  • Information availability illustrates ways that data and information are disseminated and made publicly available in a format that is understandable and useful to the user
  • Information use provides examples of key actionable research findings that have been used in the process of evidence-based decision-making, as well as examples of how interventions have successfully changed how information is used.

We hope that others might be able to draw upon the examples in these case studies and apply these approaches and tools to increase the demand for data and use of information in the settings in which they work.
