To date, Data Wednesday has focused on the mechanics of using NPP’s Federal Priorities Database—a collection of information we’ve pulled from many, many government agencies and compiled into an easy-to-use search tool.
Beginning next week, we’ll focus less on how-to and more on the concepts important to making sense of our data. What is per-capita, and why is it important? How can you compare indicators and expenditures?
In the meantime, here’s a cheat sheet of what we’ve covered so far. Give yourself a review session, and we’ll meet you back here next Wednesday.
