Data, et cetera




Welcome to Data, et cetera.

What is Data, et cetera?

Data, et cetera was started in 2018 with the goal of using publicly-available data to share knowledge in new ways. Sometimes this means analyses of data to help us understand important policy questions. Other times it's illustrating concepts in new and interesting ways. Basically, our primary objective is to be informative, accurate, and useful.

Who are we?

Data, et cetera is run by a small team of data journalists based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Patrick Drake is currently an analyst at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Previously, he was a statistician and demographer at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. You can email Patrick or find him on LinkedIn.

Alana Sharp was previously an HIV policy analyst and researcher at amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, in Washington, DC. She is also now working at the Global Fund as an information management specialist. Alana can be reached by email or LinkedIn.

Interested in how we made our visualizations?

All of the visualizations on our site are built using the D3.js JavaScript library. All of our data analysis is done using R.

Beginning April 2020, we are making the data sets and scripts used in our articles freely available. Feel free to explore the data yourself or adapt our visualizations for your own work. You can find us on GitHub.
