Poverty trap

From: <id21NewsAdmin@lyris.ids.ac.uk>

Whose data? 'Stealing' from the poor

There is growing evidence that researchers and their agencies 'cap-
ture' poverty data sets for years on end, without making them pub-
licly available. While hanging on to data sets may enhance their
reputations and help 'fast-stream' their careers, what long-term ef-
fect does this have on research into chronic poverty and ultimately,
the poor themselves?
