About Generation Alpha Data Centre

GEN α DC – Generation Alpha Data Centre South Asia, established in 2020, is an initiative of the Impact and Policy Research Institute (IMPRI), New Delhi.

Generation Alpha (born between 2010 and 2024), the cohort to succeed Gen Z (born between 1995 and 2009), is one to take life in an intensely dynamic world, where data is the next big resource, and digital technology is inextricable. Our eponymous data centre is a part of this generation, where it is increasingly important to collate and organise real-time developments in the form of evaluable data.

In this light, Gen Alpha DC aims to serve as:

  • A comprehensive repository of data and its sources on a vast range of topics for India and South Asia and their sub-regions, with an emphasis on integrated databases and real-time information;
  • A provider of high-quality and cost-effective data solutions including primary and secondary data collection, statistical analysis, visualisation and presentation, and;
  • A forum for dissemination and discussion of perspectives and recommendations on pressing issues in the realm of data measurement and official and non-official statistics, locally and globally – with an emphasis on India and South Asia.
With an extensive network of policymakers, academics, researchers and civil society, in India and South Asia, Gen Alpha DC is on track to emerge as a space of rigour and diversity, with far-reaching dissemination and impact.
