There is a huge amount of data that is collected by the UK Government and others that describes the communities in which we live. This data informs policy decisions at a national and local level. Datasets such as the Indices of Multiple Deprivation have been described as the 'billion pound dataset' because of its importance.

Outside of the world of data analysts and academia these datasets are relatively unknown, yet they can be incredibly useful to anyone who is interested in their communities, wants to develop evidence for funding applications or is thinking of developing a business in a certain area.

Data for Good #1 follows on from our So you think you know your country? events and gives deeper insight into some of the data available. The seminar will introduce the world of statistical geography and some of the datasets and tools you can use.

As the event is going to be more hands on, access to a laptop would be advantageous, but not essential.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR STATISTICAL GEOGRAPHY AND WANT TO HELP OUT - GET IN TOUCH - THE MORE PEOPLE WHO CAN HELP THE MORE PEOPLE WE CAN HELP
