To contribute to the Missing Data project, NORRAG is soliciting applications from regional experts interested in producing a concise Think Piece (7-10 pages) which will inform regional deliberations regarding priority areas around missing data groups, data types, and data purposes for further investigation in each of the following regions.
The expert is expected to draw from relevant regional academic, governmental, and grey literature on data for SDG 4 from countries in the region to address the following questions:
- Missing data groups and types: What groups of people and indicators are most systematically under-represented in education data in the region?
- Missing data purposes: What purposes do the current educational data system at the national and regional level serve? What is missing?
- How do missing data issues potentially relate to national and local systems?
- What are the most dominant challenges faced when linking national, regional, and global educational data systems in the region?
The Think Piece should provide a concise overview of key issues that will be further elaborated through a global summit at the end of 2021, regional symposia during the first half of 2022, and concluding summit at the end of 2022.
The four regions and their respective Terms of Reference (TOR) are provided below:
Interested applicants should submit their cover letter and CV to Daniel Shephard firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 June 2021 at 11:59pm (Geneva / CEST).
