A new Globe and Mail series is shedding light on data gaps across the country and highlighting the improvement needed in data access. “We have high-quality data… It’s increasingly hard to get access to some of that data,” says Robert Andersen, a professor of political science, sociology and statistics at the University of Western Ontario. André Picard, the Globe’s health reporter and columnist, also weighed in on how the data gap is most harmful to our health care systems and patients.
