CSDA research on Covid-19 digital tracing at NZ analytics conference
CDSA Deputy Director Nina Anchugina presented on ‘Covid-19 Contact Tracing Apps: What works?’ at the Chief Data and Analytics Officer (CDAO) NZconference in November.
Nina shared insights from CSDA’s 2020 working paper Digital Contact Tracing for COVID-19: A Primer for Policymakers, with a focus on:
- The technical pre-requisites for a useful contact tracing app;
- The level of take up required for an app to be useful;
- The importance of social licence; and
- How the roll out of NZ’s “Covid Tracer” compared internationally.
