Does More Data Mean Better Decisions?

We love more research and more data—but will they always mean better decisions? Interrogating this trade-off is at the heart of what much of Qaeco does.

Over on the Methods Blog, recent PhD graduate Stefano Canessa discusses in detail The Value of Information: Does More Data Mean Better Decisions?

This blog complements a recent paper by Stef wrote with Qaecologists Gurutzeta Guillera-ArroitaJosé J. Lahoz-Monfort, and Darren Southwell, and a host of fantastic collaborators:

When do we need more data? A primer on calculating the value of information for applied ecologists

And if you’re super keen, you can hear the dulcet tones of Stef walking you through process on the MEE YouTube Channel.

As always, keep up with all the research coming from Qaeco at our publications page.
