Measurement

Deepening measurement in financial inclusion

We will develop eight to 10 indicators and/or measurement frameworks for financial inclusion. These may include:

  • Measuring the actual usage of financial services, i.e. moving beyond measuring account ownerships
  • Quantifying the value and the true cost to clients of using financial services
  • Determining the causal relationships between use of financial services and development outcomes
Data Quality

Data Quality 

Advancing survey and geospatial data for financial inclusion

We seek to improve the quality, generation and use of these types of data in up to 15 countries. This may include:

  • An online interactive implementation guide to help researchers design better financial inclusion survey instruments
  • Guidance on using new technologies to improve the efficiency and accuracy of nationally-representative demand-side data collection
  • The development of new technologies and approaches for collecting and updating the location and other data on financial service access points
Data portal

Open Data Portal 

Enabling access to pioneering client data and research

The portal hosts:

  • Nationally representative demand-side survey data
  • Geospatial data
  • A library of other types of datasets contributed by partners
  • Research resulting from our work
  • Blogs, webinars, forums and other collaborative peer-to-peer learning tools
Client insight

Client Research 

Improving relevance and quality of client data and research for financial service providers

Bridging research and practice, deliverables may include:

  • Client research and analysis for specific markets
  • Case studies on the latest innovations in the use of data by financial service providers to improve client-centricity
  • Market scans on current client data practices in the sector
  • Toolkits and guidelines for client research and data methodologies
