The Economics Department of Ashoka University has set up the Centre for Economic Data and Analysis (CEDA) with the primary aim of facilitating informed debate about economic and social developments in India.
CEDA also aims to directly contribute to public discussions on policy relevant issues by generating written content in the form of blog posts, summaries of research papers, commentaries on economic and social issues etc.
To this end, CEDA has developed a public data repository along with a visualization toolkit that is accessible, searchable and interactive, and will be of use to researchers, journalists, policymakers, students and others.
CEDA provides tools for high quality, interactive data visualization with the power to succinctly summarise large amounts of information into clear and concise, easy to understand statements. In addition to providing data for public use, the centre will also provide valuable research and analytical experience to undergraduate and graduate students who can associate with CEDA as interns and research assistants, as well as use the data for their individual research.
