  Announcement: Training on "Survey Data Analysis, November 21-25, 2016"

ISER-N is pleased to announce a short-term course on Survey Data Analysis Techniques from November 21-25, 2016. We are organizing this training in collaboration with the Population Studies Center (PSC) of the University of Michigan, USA.

The short course on Survey Data Analysis Techniques is designed to provide hands-on practical skills on the state-of-the-art of survey data analysis techniques using commonly available computer software. This course will focus on survey data and data quality; types of research questions that can be answered using the survey data; and appropriate data analysis techniques. The intensive hands-on exercises will extensively use large scale real world survey data and provide practical skills to generate statistical outputs and interpretation of the results (with examples from peer-reviewed scientific articles published in world class scientific journals). Finally, this course will also cover an overview of research ethics and the publication process in peer-reviewed journals.

This course will be jointly offered by the resource persons of the University of Michigan (Dr. Dirgha Ghimire, Dr. Prem Bhandari) and ISER-N (Mr. Bishnu Adhikari).

  ***News***  Survey Data Analysis Training (November 24-28, 2014)

ISER-N in collaboration with the Survey Research Center of the University of Michigan, USA organized a 5-day training on Survey Data Analysis Techniques from November 24-28, 2014 at its central campus in Fulbari, Chitwan. The goal of this short course was to provide theoretical understanding as well as hands-on practical skills on appropriate survey data analysis techniques to empirically answer research questions and logical interpretation of the results using the real world data. This training is a part of the institute’s goal of enhancing social and environmental research capacity in Nepal and the region.

This short course on Survey Data Analysis Techniques provided both theoretical and practical understanding of identifying and designing a policy relevant research question and choosing appropriate data analysis techniques to empirically answer the question using survey data. Participants were research scholars from International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), Lalitpur, Nepal; UNICEF, Nepal; UNICEF, Pakistan; PRIME, India; Sano Paila (A Little Step), Nepal; University of Bohol, Phillipines; Research Institute for Mindanao Culture (RIMCU), Phillipines; ISER-Nepal; Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU); Interdisciplinary Analysts (IDA).

Based on the theoretical knowledge and practical skills gained during the training, the participants prepared their project works using the real world survey data and presented the work to the group. This project primarily focused on the uses of appropriate univariate, bivariate and multivariate statistical tools to answer the research question. All the presentations were excellent and reflected their enhanced capacity on the use of various survey data analysis techniques and the interpretation of the results.

ISER-N would like to thank all the participants whose active participation made the training a grand success. For those who are interested to participate the future training programs, please check ISER-N website or contact ISER-N office for more information.

  UNFPA Sponsored Training on Survey Data Analysis
 
ISER-N, in collaboration with the University of Michigan, USA offered a short course on Survey Data Analysis Techniques at its central campus in Fulbari, Chitwan from December 1-5, 2013. This training session was organized with special request from UNFPA, Nepal.  The goal of this training was to provide theoretical understanding as well as hands-on practical skills on survey data analysis techniques and logical interpretation of the results using the real world data.

Based on academic qualification, research interest, experience, and relevance, 16 applicants were selected from 24 applications forwarded by UNFPA, Nepal to the ISER-N screening committee. The trainees included research scholars, teaching faculty, and development workers/researchers from various academic, governmental and non-governmental organizations [United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA); Dadeldhura Campus, Jayaprithvi Campus; Bajura Campus; Mahendra Multiple Campus of Tribhuvan University; District Development Committee (DDC); District Child Welfare Board (DCWB); Rural Illiteracy Society Education (RISE); Youth Development Center; Fulvari Integrated Rural Development Organization (FIRDO) and Lumbini Social Development Center (LSDC)].

Trainees were encouraged to bring and use their own data set. Those who were interested in large scale national level publically available data used Nepal Demographic Health Surveys (NDHS), Nepal Living Standard Survey (NLSS), and Chitwan Valley Family Study (CVFS) data for their project work.

Participant Observations:
I received not only the basic ideas for research but also the analytical skills with statistical tools for the analysis of survey data. [Gokarna Pun, Child Rights Officer,  District Child Welfare Board, Rolpa]

I am so grateful to participate in this training. I gained knowledge and skill on data analysis. I am hopeful to publish results from my research. [Dorendra Bahadur Thapa, Lecturer, Jayaprithvi Campus (Tribhuvan University), Bajhang]

ISER-N thanks all the participants for their contributions, perspectives and thoughtful participation whose active participation made the training a grand success. ISER-N extends appreciation to the UNFPA, Nepal for this opportunity to work together to enhance social science research capacity in Nepal.

For more information about future training programs, please check ISER-N website (www.isernepal.org.np) or contact ISER-N (iser@wlink.com.np).
