Video: Data Miniseries

Our data miniseries looks at the importance of good data, how to unlock it, and how it can be used to effectively make major decisions and benefit big causes.

20 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. For his next project, he’s building a web for open, linked data that could do for numbers what the Web did for words, pictures, video: unlock our data and reframe the way we use it together.


Giorgia Lupi uses data to tell human stories, adding nuance to numbers. In this charming talk, she shares how we can bring personality to data, visualizing even the mundane details of our daily lives and transforming the abstract and uncountable into something that can be seen, felt and directly reconnected to our lives.


This video is about the importance of data in all its forms.


This DDDM video explores the process of collecting and analyzing data to inform decision making in a human service context. Using the fictional example of Greene County Department of Human Services’ foster care recruitment and licensing program, the video describes the creation of data collection and tracking systems, the monitoring of ongoing recruitment and licensing activities, and using data to identify and troubleshoot problems.


This video on data-driven decision making (DDDM) provides an overview of DDDM, explains its importance in the context of human service organizations, and describes the process of developing a theory of change as a first step in the DDDM process in the context of a fictional human services organization (Greene County Department of Human Services).
