‘No Ceilings’ Data Will Help MCC Make Investment Decisions

Writing in the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s “Poverty Reduction Blog,” Senior Development Policy Officer Andria Hayes-Birchler discusses Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recently launched “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, which aims to gather and analyze data on the progress of women globally.” She continues, “…At MCC, we rely on a huge amount of third-party data for making decisions about which countries we work with, which investments are most likely to lead to economic growth and poverty reduction (and for whom) and for measuring and understanding our results. My colleagues and I are deeply interested in ensuring high-quality data exist and that development stakeholders use that data responsibly. We know how powerful data can be in driving decisions. And we know how frustrating it can be when there isn’t good data or the data are weak. … I’m eager to see No Ceilings help us do just that” (2/20).
