Neglected and Marginalized Populations

Remote communities and developing nations often lack the investment and infrastructure to compile critical data, which can have a consequent impact on public health, security, resource management and other areas of governance. Even in high fidelity regions, data can be scarce on disadvantaged and marginalized populations, impacting critical decision-making by government and advocacy groups.

In many cases, data is unstructured, an output of analog workflows. In other cases, data isn't available at all because of political implications, inadequate collection infrastructure, difficult terrain or disputed notions of identity.

Our work with neglected populations around the world, particularly in countries impacted by conflict, provides us with vital expertise in difficult data acquisition, inference and analysis.

Rural Homelessness and Housing Scarcity

Reliable data on homelessness in urban centres is an ongoing challenge for municipalities and community services organizations, and the problem is exponentially more challenging in rural and remote areas. This data deficit inhibits funding for mitigation efforts to address the problem, and has led the Rural Development Network (RDN) to develop new modelling methodologies and guidelines which help direct assistance to this unseen population.
