Data-driven decision-making in the Portuguese Social Sector report

The purpose of this report is to serve as an overview of the current status of data-driven decision-making in the social sector in Portugal, the reasons behind this status, and a prediction of where it may be headed in the future. A survey of 243 Portuguese Social Impact Organizations (SIOs) was conducted to assess their current data practices, familiarity with data science concepts, and prioritization of implementing data-driven decision-making into organizational activities.

The report is part of the work developed under the Social Equity Initiative
