Sharing: Receiving Millions of Requests

by on January 6, 2014

nullMEASURE Evaluation has promoted better use of data worldwide by consistently sharing the latest M&E knowledge, as well as data, through a variety of communication outlets. Our website, which provides access to all MEASURE Evaluation products and our Evaluate blog, received more than four million successful requests last year alone, with the majority coming from developing countries. As of August 2013, 940 outside websites link to our site. Nearly 12,000 subscribers receive our e-newsletter, The Monitor, alerting them to M&E-related news and publications.

Between July 2012 and July 2013, our staff produced 49 publications, varying from fact sheets, reports, working papers, and manuals, to articles in peer-reviewed journals. In that same time period, PDFs on our website received a total of more than 100,000 downloads. The PDFs offered instruction and insight on an array of topics; some of the most popular included M&E Fundamentals: A Self-Guided MinicourseImproving Data Use in Decision Making:  An Intervention to Strengthen Health Systems; and Violence Against Women and Girls: A Compendium of Monitoring and Evaluation Indicators. And so other researchers continue to benefit from the data we have collected over the course of the project, MEASURE Evaluation uses the Odum Institute’s Dataverse Network to share our data while protecting the privacy of research subjects. This sharing and re-purposing of data gives future researchers around the world opportunities to make new discoveries without having to duplicate data collection efforts.
