In the context of this In On Africa (IOA) report — the Africa Country Benchmark Report (ACBR) — quality data and the effective interpretation of that data is more needed in Africa than anywhere else in the world. According to a 2014 report by Data for African Development Working Group, “nowhere is the need for better data more urgent than in most African countries, where data improvements have been sluggish.” Since then, there has been some positive developments across the African continent to improve the quality and quantity of data, but Africa’s ‘data revolution’ certainly has a long way to go.
