Data Analysis For Development Planners
The overarching objective of the course is to contribute to the development of a critical mass of highly skilled middle and senior policy officials and decision makers who will be suitably or better equipped to collect and/or analyze data for the purpose of national, sub-regional, and regional development planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. More specifically, the course will provide training on different methods and types of data collection and analyses. The course content covers a range of both theoretical and practical issues in data collection and analyses. Softwares which can be deployed to undertake complex analyses will be demonstrated and their uses taught. The course will respond to the needs articulated by African governments for a corpus of skilled mid-level and senior development planners who are adequately equipped to collect and analyse data.
