Public sector as data user

The working package focuses on how the public sector organisations employ data. Recent research shows that the predictability of individual life outcomes is often quite low, no matter what methods are used. The data might still help decision-makers to identify social mechanisms and bottlenecks involved, for example, in inequality or marginalisation, and to predict population-level outcomes. This working package will study both the development of new data-based decision-making tools, especially in the context of social and healthcare organisations and already existing tools. Focused case studies will help to identify which practices are conducive to the non-invasive and socially sustainable data-based decision-making.
