Please note that the Datastore is currently in its first release. Therefore, data queries may sometimes result in unexpected outputs. In particualar, invalid publisher data has been known to cause problems when importing data into the Datastore.
Tips, pitfalls and warnings¶
Warning! The Datastore is not a single dataset
A single activity may be reported by a donor, an implementing agent and an aid information management system or other secondary source publisher.
Care thus needs to be taken in combining data from different sources.
- Duplication and Double Counting
- Publisher Profiles
- Timeliness and Frequency of updates
- Downloading the complete database?
