To document what type of information decision-makers at various levels are currently using and what type of information they still need, Data for Decisions to Expand Nutrition Transformation (DataDENT) developed an online survey that was distributed through nutrition community listservs and professional networks between July and August 2018. Respondents were asked about their professional background, recent (last 12 months) access to specific nutrition indicators and data sources, unmet data needs, and how they use data in their work.
The results of this survey highlight the need for actionable nutrition data to help facilitate progress towards national and global nutrition targets.
