From the perspective of four common approaches as to how social entrepreneurs use statistics – getting started, fostering their venture, measuring impact, and communicating the overall phenomenon of social entrepreneurship, the report examines social entrepreneur’s usage of data both as recipients of data – official and liquid – and their capacity, motivation and purpose of production of data. It seeks to better understand:
a) why social entrepreneurs use data;
b) how do they use it;
c) what is their perspective on the usage of data e.g. trust, level of importance in relation to their work;
d) how these factors are likely to change overtime and the causation of such changes.
