Research Approaches, Data Management & Analysis for Quantitative and Qualitative Researches using Stata & NVivo. (2nd – 13th, July, 2018)
2 July - 13 July
This training seeks to enhance the skills of participants using both qualitative and quantitative research approaches in undertaking their researches, projects programs, feasibility studies among others. The training will cover ways to undertaking research with particular attention to collecting and analyzing both qualitative and quantitative data; the use of information Technology for data collection (mobile Based Data Collection using ODK), data management analysis and interpretation of empirical results. The focus of this training is therefore to enable participants learn how to use Stata for quantitative data management and analysis and NVIvo software for qualitative data management and analysis.
