If you have a question about this talk, please contact Louise Rushworth.

The amount of data accessible to researchers and decisions-makers has increased, and continues to increase, in ways that were scarcely imaginable a generation ago.

Most of this growth is related to digital computing and communications, which contributes in at least three ways:

  • it allows much more data to be collected than was possible with “pencil and paper” recording, either by assisting the observer (data entry direct to computer) or by replacing the need for a human observer (interviewer, etc) at all (eg telemetry; web-based questionnaires);
  • it facilitates the distribution of data;
  • digital communications themselves generate new data, about linkages, communications, transactions, etc.
