This page has been updated for the September 3, 2020 launch of INDIGO's collaborative process for sharing data. All are welcome to the INDIGO Session on Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 15:00 (BST) as part of the Social Outcomes Conference 2020. Some resources referenced on this page will be posted at that time.
Welcome to our Impact Bond Dataset V2 Beta, which is part of the INDIGO initiative. (See here for an introduction to INDIGO.) As of September of 2020, we are collecting data for publication and offering commentary on a rolling quarterly basis. Our first such publication and commentary will be available in Q4 2020.
Data Definitions: The data definitions associated with this dataset are detailed in the INDIGO Data Dictionary 2020 V2.01.
Help us improve our data quality: If you work on an impact bond project, please contact us at email@example.com to talk about sharing your data. We will ask you to update the INDIGO Data Template Spreadsheet using the INDIGO Data Definitions 2020 as a guide. [Links to these resources will be posted on September 3, 2020.] We are asking impact bond parties for data on:
Please also give us feedback through the INDIGO Feedback Questionnaire and the INDIGO Data Definitions Improvement Tool. [Links will be posted on September 1, 2020.] Thanks!
INDIGO data are shared for research and policy analysis purposes. INDIGO data can be used to support a range of insights, for example, to understand the social outcomes that projects aim to improve, the network of organisations across projects, trends, scales, timelines and summary information. The collaborative system by which we collect, process, and share data is designed to advance data-sharing norms, harmonise data definitions and improve data use. These data are NOT shared for auditing, investment, or legal purposes. Please independently verify any data that you might use in decision making. We provide no guarantees or assurances as to the quality of these data. Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise. Help us improve our data quality: email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have data on new projects, changes or performance updates on current projects, clarifications or corrections on our data, and/or confidentiality or sensitivity notices. Please also give input via the INDIGO Data Definitions Improvement Tool and INDIGO Feedback Questionnaire.
