One of the indicators for the LAC Three-year plan 2019-2022 is the number of records enhanced by user contributions in the Co-Lab crowdsourcing tool. The indicator is to be released quarterly — I understand this is under review.

However, the last quarterly report posted was for the period July-Sept 2019. I'm told a report will be forthcoming by the end of the month.
