Synthesis of three data capacity assessments (Ghana, Mozambique, Philippines) that aimed to both to evaluate the countries’ data systems and to determine how well each country’s own data systems can:
• Inform and support the development and implementation of education sector policies, plans, and strategies;
• Provide the basis for coordinating and aligning external assistance in support of the education sector;
• Underpin the development of USAID’s five-year country strategy, sector-specific programs, and projects; and
• Generate data to evaluate and report on the performance, outcomes, and impact of USAID (and other) investments.
