Data Africa is a project that aims to provide data about African countries that are south of the Sahara. The project is a collaboration between three institutions: the University of Minnesota, the International Food Resource Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and Datawheel. Together, the University of Minnesota and IFPRI head HarvestChoice, an initiative that aims to "generate data and knowledge products to support strategic investments on agricultural research and development in Africa South of the Sahara (SSA)." Datawheel is a web design company that also worked on Data USA (see the 11-24-2017 Scout Report). As of this write-up, Data Africa includes thirteen country profiles. Each country profile contains information about agricultural output, climate, health (including a number of statistics about the health of children in each country), and poverty rates. In addition, visitors can view data pertaining to specific counties within each country by selecting the county of interest in the About us section. These statistics are presented through a series of easy-to-interpret infographics.
