Indigenous Data Toolkit

This Toolkit supports Indigenous governments to use and manage socioeconomic data to improve life for their peoples, and in ways that reflect their cultural traditions.

This Toolkit has been created by and for Self-Governing Indigenous Governments (SGIGs). While some of the content is specific to this context, much of it will be useful for other Indigenous governments and organizations as well.

Glossary of Terms

Disaggregated Data: Disaggregated data helps us better understand data trends by looking at it in smaller, more specific groups or categories. Examples include breaking down data collection into age groups, gender, geographic location (i.e., urban vs rural), and socioeconomic status.

Indicators: An indicator is a specific data point or piece of information that is used to measure, monitor, or signal changes of a population, trend, or situation. For example, indicators can be used to measure community wellness, level of education or program outcomes.

Program Evaluation : Program evaluations are commonly used in the non-profit organizations to assess the overall impact and effectiveness of a program. Program evaluations serve several purposes, such as providing data-driven insights to inform decisions about funding, continuation, or expansion of programs.

Program Framework: A Program Framework provides a visual or roadmap for understanding how a program is designed, how it operates and how it is expected to achieve its goals and objectives.
