To clean, analyse and interrogate dive one sanitation data set from Lusaka in Zambia
To really allow us to understand the potential power of the data that is being collected in the sanitation sector - and to demonstrate the benefit of harmonising data - we hosted the world’s first data dive for urban sanitation. We brought together 20 data scientists to clean, analyse and interrogate dive one sanitation data set from Lusaka in Zambia. In just two days our data scientists demonstrated the power and potential of data for decision making.
They created a multitude of maps to visualise the current state of sanitation and interactive dashboards to provide insight into risk and service expansion. Most importantly, they assessed the quality of the data. They confirmed the need for better data strategy and management across the urban sanitation sector.

Urban Sanitation Data Dive
Our data scientists - who represented some of the best talent from leading universities and businesses across the UK - then formed four teams and looked at:
1. Assessing the validity and reliability of the data.
2. Using the data to estimate the coverage of sanitation services.
3. Using the data to assess health risks to the population.
4. Using the data to optimise waste collection routes.
