The limitation of data in Puerto Rico is real. In the wake of hurricane Maria, access to data is critical in the rebuilding process, the development of public policies and services, and the creation of data development agendas.
A Source Library identifying questionnaires and data import wizards that includes data for Puerto Rico will help us access most of the information available.
The inventory should include the following agencies: US Census, HHS & CDC, Education, Department of Family Services and Labor Statistics Bureau.
The success of our organization depends on having access to accurate data. Without your help, we cannot raise awareness of issues children face. Your skills will empower us to identify public policy problems and make recommendations.
We currently have identify several project in multiple agencies which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have websites, templates and the ability to provide any other information you need.
