This guide concerns data -- its collection, reporting, and use. The first section lays out the multiple issues involved in data collection: the strengths and weaknesses of formats that can be used in data collection; data-collection scheduling; data quality and methods of ensuring it; data unique to individual projects; and confidentiality and the protection of human subjects in data collection. Other sections of this report concern ways of building data-collection capacity among projects; rationales, sources, and measures of comparison data; issues inherent in the reporting and displaying of data; and the uses to which cross-project data might be put.
