Research & Analytics
At the Virtue Foundation, research and analytics is a large part of all of our program areas, and an ultimate goal in every project we undertake. Analytics is enabled by knowledge and data. Therefore, another guiding principle of our work is the collection and sharing of interdisciplinary data to better inform our programming. To this end, we are currently developing several interactive map projects that will lay out need and available resources to inform where assistance is needed, and help guide specifically what kind of intervention is needed as well.
Below are examples of such relational maps that Virtue Foundation has developed and made available publicly:
