How Good Are CDR-Derived Measures of Income and Inequality, and Can Governments Systematically Use Them?

How Good Are CDR-Derived Measures of Income and Inequality, and Can Governments Systematically Use Them?

SDG: 10 - Reduced Inequalities17 - Partnerships for the Goals

Official measures of poverty and inequality are currently produced with a multi-year time lag and have varying levels of coverage across countries. This project aims to evaluate techniques that use Call Detail Records (CDRs) to offer more timely and complete estimates of these variables. With the support of this innovation grant, the project will then explore if and how these new techniques can be incorporated into the routine work of agencies in a client country government, in this case, that of Colombia. More timely and disaggregated socio-economic measures are vital to responsive policy design and implementation.
