The Common Data Template is a tool to help local country teams assess data gaps and construct data baselines. It is built based on the Essential Minimum Data Package. In the template, rows are exactly the same as corresponding rows in the Essential Minimum Data Package, while columns incorporate some of the key questions about each data source included in the questionnaire.

Ideally, the Common Data Template should be filled by a country's national data team.
