We are developing new approaches to survey data collection with the goal of making data collection radically faster and cheaper. In the past year we have scaled our system to eight Indian states and now regularly report to the Indian central government on how well services are being delivered to 60 million people. This engagement aims to use innovative data collection methods to support NITI Aayog across four sectors - Agriculture, Nutrition, Financial Inclusion, and Water Sanitation Hygiene - and additional priority areas identified by the Government of India. The Data on Demand team works to produce data to monitor and improve district performance across states in India. Over the next few years, we plan to expand across India and sub-Saharan Africa and we will continue working towards a future where nationally representative surveys can be completed in days, not years, for a small fraction of the status quo price.
