Looking into the future of inequalities
UNDP Moldova did a project to explore urban and rural inequalities. In this paper, SenseMaker® data is explored alongside big data, statistics and integrated in the analysis to provide a more comprehensive perspective on the very complex topic.
Through this paper, UNDP Moldova is tapping into new evidence, including big data on mobility and thick data on people’s perceptions. We analyzed income and some non-income inequalities through the prism of access to qualitative services, including health care, primary education, green spaces, transportation and urban mobility. While income inequalities are relatively low, our analysis demonstrates the risks of new non-income inequalities emerging, such as inequalities in accessing food and energy.
