Donors, partner countries, private donors and international organizations are increasingly making information on their activities available to the public. These data are in a variety of formats, with different fields and units of analysis to suit the various needs of each organization and its constituencies. AidData Raw is a repository for this information, to complement the standardized data in the main AidData database. In AidData Raw, users can find the freshest information—including datasets that have not yet been vetted by the AidData team, or that may not follow the same format as the searchable database. It offers a new, multidimensional view of aid activities, and a central place to search for the latest information on development finance—just browse the types of datasets listed to the left.
This is a prototype version of AidData Raw. A new and improved version, with a search function and other features, is currently under development.
These datasets come from a variety of sources. Some datasets provide a combination of information retrieved by AidData from the donor itself—e.g. financial details or descriptive information—and additional sector, activity, or geographical codes applied by AidData staff.
Datasets included in AidData Raw are not necessarily comparable to those in the main AidData database or to each other, and may not be formatted per accepted international standards, such as that of the CRS or IATI. Users should be aware that these datasets are intended for isolated use, and should not be combined with each other, nor should they be used as definitive sources of information.
