DAC CCI Mapping Study Methodology - Assessment As Cultural Observatory researchers have worked through the DAC (2014) Mapping Study methodology and raw data, a number of issues have emerged. Some of these are things that relate to research design: They are not necessarily wrong, but need careful thought before another study is run (Part A below). Others are related to the way the data was captured and analysed, and do call into question the reliability of the results (Part B below). This last (incorrect data coding and classification into the UNESCO categories) is what makes the study less reliable. It should be noted that errors were not evident in the report itself, but were only discovered on closer examination of the raw data files provided by Plus94.
