Quite often the best data for a local indicators project will be found at the local level. Particularly in rural areas, data collected at a regional or national level do not include enough data to work for a local project. The secret to finding data for indicators is to include as many different people as possible in defining the indicators. These people will be able to provide ideas for sources of data.
