Learning more about Data Innovation Program datasets and developing analytical tools

Project type: DI Program Government project

Status: In progress

Ministry of Citizens's Services

Through this project, the ministry’s data scientists and data science fellows aim to learn more about the de-identified data collected and used under the Data Innovation Program so they can improve the program’s analytic concepts, policies, services and technology. The program supports government in understanding B.C.’s complex issues, helping to generate an evidence base for decision-making, which can ultimately lead to better programs and services for citizens. This project aligns with the ministry’s 2019/20 service plan: the strategy to establish and promote data-driven partnerships across government.
