OPHI Training for PEP survey teams from Nigeria, Chad and Sri Lanka

OPHI staff in Oxford conducted a training course on survey design, implementation and analysis for representatives of three successful teams that were awarded grants by OPHI and the Poverty and Economic Policy (PEP) network. The training preceded the three teams’ implementation of OPHI’s survey modules in parts of Chad, Nigeria and Sri Lanka. The surveys were designed to generate data on the Missing Dimensions and also to investigate the validity of the survey instruments in their particular countries. The course was created to familiarize the participants with academic research on survey design. This training also provided support to the participants’ design of an integrated questionnaire, guidelines for implementation, Access database, as well as the identification of key research questions and strategies for data tabulation and analysis–all of which they drew upon when implementing the survey in their own countries.
