    @Aamir: While the need for rigor in data collection is very important, perhaps even critical, one must also recognise the human tendency to seek excuses for inaction. Much of poor governance and non-working social mechanisms can be attributed, imho, to inaction.

    One of the well-crafted excuses for inaction is poor data, or lack of data entirely, meaning not that there is no information, but that the information has not been collected through regular channels. The implication being therefore that the information is suspect, by definition.

    This is a very great danger in our societies, where we have become used – indeed, inured – to inaction. It is vital that data collection exercises be hallmarked with transparency and an open attitude towards the methodologies and diligence of the various exercises involved.
