The European Commission’s Competence Centre on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards (COIN) at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) conducted a statistical audit of the methodology used by IWDA for the Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) study in Fiji, using data collected by the Fiji Bureau of Statistics in 2015-16 during an earlier phase of our work.* This statistical audit provides transparency and robustness to the methodology used for index construction, and informs our current work.

* Note: From August 2020, IWDA is progressing previous work on the IDM as ‘Equality Insights’. The technical documentation reviewed by COIN was completed by IWDA during the four-year program to ready the IDM for global use (2016-2020). This program was a partnership between the Australian National University (ANU) and IWDA with strategic and funding support from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
