Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?

You have a critical thinking mindset. Yes, evaluators and end-users of data visualizations should bear in mind what data visualization cannot do. The first limitation of data displays concerns issues related to causality. One of the main purposes of data visualization is to illustrate relationships pointedly. However, visualizations can easily mislead readers into thinking that relationships or patterns exist when in reality they do not. If seeing is believing, then visualizing data can exacerbate the fallacies perpetuated by questionable statistics such as spurious correlations. Besides, we should also be aware of understanding the connection between the visualization and the evaluation purpose/question. Evaluations often contain multiple data sources and analyses; however, not every analysis requires a visualization. In selecting which visualizations to create, the evaluator needs to keep in mind the main evaluation questions and design visualizations that can clearly support the answer to those questions. Therefore, it is important to highlight the most important information when designing visualizations so as not to obscure the most relevant evaluation findings.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
