Founded by economic thought leaders and technologists, World Data Lab (WDL) is a data science SaaS enterprise that uses cutting-edge, peer-reviewed methodologies and AI to most credibly model and forecast spending power as well as demographic dynamics.
Our proprietary data models enable organizations, businesses, and the general public to make better decisions - from deciding which labor market policy has the biggest effect to entering a new market based on the next million consumers. In all we do, our ultimate goal is to create as much impact as possible. Our leading products like population.io, worldpoverty.io, worldhunger.io, and our World Data Pro tool have already reached millions of people across the globe, truly democratizing access to data.
The role will support WDL’s initiatives under a new project, through which we seek to develop a granular real-time job growth model for young Africans, to monitor and forecast employment trends across a minimum of seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa (Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Senegal). The objective of this comprehensive real-time data model is to produce credible job estimates, including complementary data on prospective job entrants and the number of inactive and unemployed young Africans. The data model and the tool are intended to support efforts to better model youth employment levels across Africa to respond to select research needs and foster local impact.
