Dashboards / Specifications

There are a number of dashboards which are available to all users of ePACT2.

Dashboard Specification

The dashboard specifications will help users understand how each dashboard and each set of analysis was designed. It will take into account:

  • the methodology used
  • any assumptions made during the process

Our aim is to have a specification available for each dashboard.
