The New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) has released a Public Good Insight, entitled ‘How big data can be a force for good. Here is the link: https://www.nzier.org.nz/publications/how-big-data-can-be-a-force-for-good-nzier-insight-103
The Insight focuses on how the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) tool, developed by Statistics New Zealand, can be used by policymakers and researchers to undertake better research and make better decisions.
Since its development, 735 projects have used micro-level data from the IDI to monitor trends in our society, conduct research, identify inequality, fight COVID-19 and inform policy decisions.
