Six principles of data analysis specific to NIPN (1/5)

To achieve the NIPN objective of using data to inform a nutrition policy dialogue, data analysis in NIPN follows six principles:

  1. Existing quantitative data should be used.
  2. Simple, clear and country-owned data analyses are more likely to have an impact on policy makers.
  3. Building NIPN’s credibility is essential: disseminate only valid, robust analyses that cannot be disputed.
  4. The findings should “tell a story”.
  5. The timing of the presentation of the findings should fit with the policy calendar.
  6. NIPN data experts should work hand in hand with NIPN policy experts.

Principle 1: Existing quantitative data should be used

One of the strengths of NIPN is in making better use of existing national and sub-national quantitative data. It is not foreseen in the mandate or set-up of NIPN that the platform will collect new data.

Therefore, policy questions that require the collection of new data cannot be answered by NIPN.
