Data That Makes a Difference

This two-day conference focuses on discussions among researchers across the spectrum about how to get more from our data, both collectively and individually. Presenters will also highlight innovative practices in data utilization, analysis, and dissemination, and look at how data is being utilized to drive impact in the homeless-serving sector.

DATA THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

What can we learn if we start sharing data across projects?

In May each year, researchers from across Canada gather in Calgary to discuss the data they are collecting to support various projects related to homelessness. We have learned that our data can and should be shared to support new, better and more impactful analysis.

How can we use our collective data to produce better, more accurate results to inform the allocation of resources and end homelessness in our communities?

In short, how can we use our data to make a difference?
