Training Classes (Optional)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will have two training sessions in the morning, from 10 am to 12 pm. These are optional programs, and mainly targeted for participants with some basic data analysis skills and experiences.


Analyzing household survey data using Stata 
We will present how the household survey sampling works, discuss best practices, and hands-on training on some analysis examples. We expect the participants to have Stata installed on their laptop and experiences regularly using it, since we will not have time to cover the basic of how to operate Stata.


Linking household survey with geospatial data using QGIS
We will first present some introduction to QGIS interface (in case you’re not familiar with), followed by hands-on training on how to link the household survey data with geospatial data layers from multiple sources. We expect the participants to have some experiences using a GIS software.
