Chapter 2 Data Collection I began my Data Collection chapter by collecting information from a number of secondary data sources (e.g Websites, textbooks, class notes, teacher hand-outs etc) and a piece of software called AEGIS. This allowed us to search development indicator data for all the countries in Africa and present the information using different graph types on a map of Africa. This chapter also includes an explanation of what AEGIS does, the problems of using it in class, the procedure we used for searching data using AEGIS, the general problems of data collection and how we overcame them. Quality introduction to Chapter 2.
