This data primarily relays information about the turnout of people seeking different community based services based on their situations. It gives insight into how much needs to be done to really cater for the central needs of different groups based on their numbers. It can act as a basis for policy and social practice to enable responsive groups to plan and come up with the best strategies and methods of alleviating poverty and reducing social exclusion. It can be used as an effective tool for need assessment, project appraisal and situation analysis. From a social perspective, quantitative data assists in detecting social gaps in the community using research figures and identifying the actual social issues that need to be addressed.
