We use an anonymized snapshot of all active Facebook users and their friendship networks to measure the intensity of connectedness between locations. The Social Connectedness Index (SCI) is a measure of the social connectedness between different geographies. Specifically, it measures the relative probability that two individuals across two locations are friends with each other on Facebook.
Details on the underlying data and the construction of the index are provided in the “Facebook Social Connectedness Index - Data Notes.pdf” file. Please also see https://dataforgood.fb.com/ as well as the associated research paper “Social Connectedness: Measurement, Determinants and Effects,” published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives (https://www.aeaweb.org/articles?id=10.1257/jep.32.3.259).

This dataset combines two sources of education-insecurity data:
Machine-learning-driven counts of tweets from Africa and the Middle East on the topic of education insecurity—in Arabic, English, and French—via the Artificial Intelligence for Disaster Response (AIDR) project
Human-curated reports of actual education-insecurity events in Africa and the Middle East, via the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data (ACLED) project.
This is a Twitter dataset collected during the typhoon Mangkhut 2018 in the Philippines. The data was collected, processed, and analyzed by the AIDR (http://aidr.qcri.org) platform using state of the art machine learning techniques. The data includes the reports of number of injured and dead people, infrastructure damage reports, missing or found people, urgent needs and donation offers for each hour. Due to Twitter TOS, we do not share full tweets content on HDX. Please contact us via HDX or on firstname.lastname@example.org to get tweet ids of the dataset along with a tool which can be used to rehydrate tweets from tweet ids.
