Introduction

The proliferation of data offers exciting prospects for development. SciDev.Net has recently done a series of articles on how data can support development, including an interactive piece on the Digital Divide, and would like to hear your thoughts on our coverage and where you think our reporting should go next. The survey should only take 5-10 minutes to complete.

* 1. What sector do you work in?

* 3. SciDev.Net recently produced an interactive piece on the Digital Divide. On a scale of 1-5, how would you rate this piece?

* 4. What did you like about the Digital Divide interactive?

* 5. How do you think the Digital Divide interactive could have been improved?

* 6. Have you used the Digital Divide piece to inform your own work? If so, how?

* 7. As well as informing the general public, SciDev.Net seeks to mainstream the use of science and technology in policymaking. How effective do you think data visualisations in general are in communicating information to decision-makers in the Global South? How can they be made more effective?

* 8. What do you think is the biggest constraint to using data to inform or support development? Why do you think this is?

* 9. What would you like to see SciDev.Net cover next in terms of the relationship between data and development?
