Data Surgery - Methodologies

This thread is a summary of all questions about methodology. The questions were written in our Data Surgery on 12/1/18.

  • Why can’t we agree on a common Taxonomy? How else can we understand sectors?
  • How can we create unique identifiers for informal groups?
  • Can we weight funding data to give preference for recent years?
  • How funding scale is related to eg. duration/sector/leadership (gender, age, etc.)
  • How variations and renewed grant are made by organisations? How often? To what extant?
  • Does the money goes where it most needed?
