Jam Data is an electronic database of indicators developed under the Data4Development Initiative. This initiative seeks to give all citizens access to national and sub-national data across various sectors, with Jam Data being the primary data storage medium.
The Data4Development platform will streamline evidence-based decision-making by putting data into the hands of those who will use it. With innovative and data-driven visualizations, the integrated Data4Development platform allows everyone to become more engaged in planning, monitoring and reporting in Jamaica. The platform aims at establishing a data culture in Jamaica by promoting evidence-based planning.
Policy planners will be able to assess the progress of Vision 2030 Jamaica – National Development Plan through interactive and data-driven visualization. The database, organized by sectors, themes and goals, allows users ease of access to the indicators in the database. The system facilitates the sharing of data using a variety of social media platforms.
