40 Things (You Just Might Not Know) About PIDS (20/40): Geographic Information Systems 

In 2000, PIDS started the Geographic Information Systems (GIS)—an automated, internet-based, and user-friendly database system that provides a unique way of viewing and analyzing spatial data through geographical format. Full-color maps reveal patterns and relationships that will allow users to view information in a new perspective. Maps on this site contain socioeconomic indicators such as gross regional domestic product, unemployment rate, and poverty incidence. Other social indicators like infant mortality rate, cohort survival rate, and results of the National Elementary Achievement Test and the National Secondary Achievement Test are also included. Data for these indicators may be viewed at the national, regional, and provincial levels.
