The platform was launched this Tuesday by Julio Santaella, general director of the Inegi, and Graciela Márquez, secretary of Economy.
Data México consists of a three-year collaboration between the Ministry of the Economy and Datawheel for the creation of a digital tool for data analysis and visualization, the promotion of technical and scientific capacities in the use of data for decision-making and the diffusion of technological tools.
Another component is the creation of a research node where, jointly, the academy, the private sector and society in general use this tool and the new instruments that Data Science has generated to formulate the most pressing questions about the economic development of Mexico and provide the answers to build the foundations for prosperity and well-being in the country.
