Bad Data: The Hobgoblin of Effective Government
An ASPA webinar in partnership with the Center for Accountability and Performance is being held at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday July 26. The topic is “bad data,” and the ways it impacts the smooth functioning of states and localities.
Wednesday, July 26 1 p.m. ET
Collecting data is very important to most government agencies and nonprofit institutions, but it must be quality data or there’s little utility for it. Join us for this webinar, which will delve into the ins and outs of flawed information. Katherine will be a panelist, and Rich will be moderating (as you’ll see below).
With a growing emphasis on the use of data to effectively and efficiently run government, its quality is critical. All too frequently, the information used is out of date, inaccurate, incompatible, siloed, difficult to use and confusing.
This panel will delve into the reasons data can be problematic, the ramifications and the reasons this issue is of paramount importance.
This B&G Report item is especially aimed at members of ASPA, as they can sign up for free. For others, it’s a $75 fee.
