Data is the engine of applied development economics. While donors and researchers spend a lot of time and resources polishing funding proposals and final reports, very little to no effort is devoted to setting quality standards for data collection.  
                          
 
DIME has taken up this challenge with the creation of DIME Analytics, a small team responsible for developing and overseeing data quality protocols and pushing measurement frontiers through experimentation.

About DIME and DIME Analytics

DIME Analytics creates tools that improve the quality of impact evaluation research for all. We take advantage of the concentration and scale of research at DIME to develop and test solutions to ensure data work quality across our portfolio, and to make public training and tools available to the larger community of development researchers who might not have the same capabilities.

DIME is the World Bank’s impact evaluation department. Part of DIME’s mission is to intensify the production of, and access to, public goods that improve the quantity and quality of global development research, while lowering the costs of performing impact evaluations for the entire research community. The DIME Wiki aims to further this initiative, and is funded by the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office through the i2i Trust Fund.
