The Data Library (DDL) is USAID’s publicly available repository for Agency-funded data-on-demand.  As a best practice digital archive, the new platform strives to preserve and accelerate the re-use of valuable data to advance international development and improve program development and performance.

Actively managed by a staff of data curators, USAID’s new DDL is a true data repository, suited for internal Agency analytics as well as sharing with the general public.  New features in the DDL can be used to visualize data, download in its raw form, track changes over time, or create dynamic connections via an Application Programing Interface (API) to filter, query, and aggregate data.
