This practical comprehensive hands-on course targets undergraduate, post-graduate, MA or PhD students; program managers, monitoring & evaluation professionals or anyone who needs to perform research data or statistical analyses using questionnaires survey methodology where the data are subsequently transformed into tables and figures which gives you the first comprehensible results. Participants will be able to pick a basic and straightforward technical skillset to effectively summarize the results of their analysis and describe these results.

On completion of the course, participants will have the necessary familiarity with EpiData Software to move on to further EpiData courses or continue learning themselves.

 

Specifically we’ll cover the 3 stages of data processing; namely:

 

Input – After data collection the raw data must be fed into the cycle for processing, is referred to as input.

Processing – Once the raw data is provided, it is processed using a suitable or chosen statistical tool. This is an important step because it outputs the processed data that will be used later.

Output – This is the result. The raw data that was provided in the first stage has now been “processed,” and is now useful and informative, and it is no longer referred to as data.
