Making the most of the data navigator

Data is not new. Put simply it is just information. However how and why we collect data and the way we use it has significantly shifted over the past few decades. Data is helping us to make decisions in policy and developing programming.  Making data-driven decisions can lead to better outcomes for rangatahi, and so we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of the data, so you can help rangatahi to thrive.

We’ve created some tips to help you get the most out of using the data navigator.

Tip #1 Keep coming back!

On your first visit to the data navigator you might not find what you’re looking for. Chances are what you are looking for is there, it’s just waiting to be uncovered and this might take a few visits to familiarise yourself with the data and the way it is presented.

Tip #2 Kōrero, kōrero

Have a conversation with your colleagues about what the data is telling you and think about what that might mean in your context. For instance, it might just be something interesting to you, but having a kōrero or conversation about it can open up the lens through which you’re seeing and interpreting the data.

Tip #3 Check out the Data Definitions & Information page

Familiarise yourself with our data definitions and information page. This gives you important information about how we define disadvantage and exclusion. Disadvantage and exclusion are some key words you’ll see pop up a lot and is one of the filters you can use on the dashboard.

Tip #4 Ask us

We’re here to help. We are committed to support you to make the best decisions, based on data, to support rangatahi thrive in your community. Ask us a question and we can help you work through what you’re looking for. Use our contact page to connect with us.
