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 Washington, DC.

Patrick Drake is currently a senior data analyst with KFF’s Program on Medicaid and the Uninsured. Previously, he was an analyst at the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and a statistician and demographer at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. You can email Patrick, find him on LinkedIn, or view his CV.

Alana Sharp is a senior associate at the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University, working in the Global Health Policy and Politics team. Previously, she held positions at the Global Fund in Geneva and at amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, in Washington, DC. Alana can be reached by email or LinkedIn, and her CV is available here.
