Data that Works

By Tamra Thetford

“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.”
-Gertrude Stein

This guide serves as a way to help you think through the key pieces involved in collecting, storing and using your data. Each chapter tackles a topic along the spectrum of collection to use, highlights the most important things to keep in mind when tackling the topic and presents examples to give you a tangible place to start. This guide is targeted to student-led microenterprise programs that are generally young organizations with relatively minimal data tools and needs.
