Rapid Expert Consultations on the COVID-19 Pandemic

Evaluating Data Types

A Guide for Decision Makers using Data to Understand the Extent and Spread of COVID-19 (2020)

National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) has released a guide entitled “A Guide for Decision Makers using Data to Understand the Extent and Spread of COVID-19.”

This rapid expert consultation provides insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the data on the COVID-19 pandemic by applying five criteria to seven types of data available to support decision making. It was produced through the Societal Experts Action Network (SEAN), an activity of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. SEAN links researchers in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences with decision makers to respond to policy questions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
