In the New York Times, IPA researchers Rachel Glennerster and Tavneet Suri of MIT, and Herbert M'Cleod of the International Growth Centre write about the critical role of good data in fighting Ebola. They compare the numbers found by IPA and other researchers with the misinformaiton often repeated by government officials or media. Glennerster adds a piece cut from the op-ed on her blog, about the agriculture crisis that wasn't, where IPA's data showed food price stability, in contrast with popular reports.
