Inclusive Data Taskforce recommendations report: Leaving no one behind – How can we be more inclusive in our data?

For example, for those surveys currently collecting information about children, data producers should consider what information can be collected directly from children themselves, using appropriate instruments and diverse forms of data collection (for example, pictures and diaries), drawing upon best practice in data collection and ethical approaches, while recognising the potential additional time / burden involved and the privacy needed for children to be able to take part. Data should also be collected to reflect more marginalised children (for example, disabled children, children of prisoners, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children, looked after children, refugees and unaccompanied migrants) as a priority.
