1 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys Survey Design Workshop Data Entry and Processing

2 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop MICS4 Data Processing System: Actors and Roles –Country data processing manager and country team: Customization of data entry programs, data entry, editing, and production of datasets Customization of tabulation syntaxes and tabulation –Regional Office MICS Coordinator Coordination and supervision, organization of the Data Processing workshop –Regional Office Data Processing Consultant Technical support and review of customized programs and close work with country teams –HQ Data processing unit Development of standard programs, templates and coordination of Data Processing workshops

3 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop MICS4 Data Processing System Designed to deliver the first results of a survey within several weeks after the end of fieldwork simultaneouslySuch rapid turnaround time is possible when completed questionnaires are entered simultaneously with survey fieldwork all the questionnaires from a clusterData for each cluster is stored in a separate data file and is processed as soon as all the questionnaires from a cluster are returned from the field This approach breaks data processing down into discrete segments and allows it to progress while fieldwork is ongoing By the time the last questionnaires are finished and returned to headquarters, most of the data have already been processed

4 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop MICS4 Data Processing System The data-processing system can be divided into following phases: –Customization of MICS4 data entry program and tabulation syntaxes [Regional Workshop], –Establishing the data entry system locally, –Primary data processing, –Secondary data processing, and –Tabulation.

5 Customization of data entry files Adapting MICS4 standard data entry program files to the country-specific questionnaire –Second Regional Workshop [Data Processing] Adapting MICS4 standard tabulation syntax files –During and immediately after the workshop MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

6 Establishing the data entry system The goal is to be ready to begin data entry shortly (about one week later) after the fieldwork commences The preparation phase involves the following steps: –Obtaining computer equipment and setting up a data-processing room –Identifying and recruiting appropriate personnel so that they participate to fieldwork personnel training –Setting up a system for managing the questionnaires and data files

7 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Computers Operating system: Windows 98 or later Computers adequate to run Windows 98 or better versions –Adequate hard disk space –Adequate memory Network recommended –otherwise use USB memory sticks to backup and transfer data Printer

8 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Software CSPro (version 4.0) - available at: for free download (registration required) –Data Entry Interactive Range, skip, consistency checks –Structure check Ensures completeness of data –Verification 100% double entry –Secondary editing Complex consistency checks –Export to SPSS

9 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Primary Data Processing The goal of primary data processing is to produce clean, edited data files. Primary data processing involves the following steps: –Entering all questionnaires for a cluster onto a data file –Production of field check tables –Checking the structure of the data file –Entering the data a second time and then verifying the data file –Backing up the checked and verified data file –Performing secondary editing on the data file –Backing up the edited, or final, data file

10 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Data processing requirements Computers –1 per data entry operator –Plus 1 for supervisor Arrange day/night shifts if workload is heavy Staff –Data processing supervisor (1 or 2) –Data entry operators (variable) Can enter about 1 cluster per day –Data editors (1 or 2) 6-7 hours per day including breaks

11 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Flow of data entry

12 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

13 Secondary Data Processing The goal of secondary data processing is to produce analysis data files and to create the MICS4 standard tables. Secondary data processing involves the following steps: –Bringing together all cluster data files into one data file –Exporting the data to the SPSS software –Recoding some variables to be used in analysis –Calculating sample weights and adding to data files –Computing wealth index and adding to data files –Creating the tables required to analyse the data –[Archiving and distributing the data files]

14 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Software PASW statistics 18 [formerly SPSS] –Construction of analysis files HH: Household HL: Household Listing WM: Women CH: Children –Production of tabulations –Analysis of sampling errors/confidence intervals

15 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

16 Data sharing and ownership of data Data are the property of the country UNICEF agreements with countries should permit UNICEF (CO, RO and HQ) and country partners to: –Receive datasets and tabulations as soon as data processing is complete –Receive reports, including drafts, as soon as available and prior to publication –Distribute datasets, tabulations and reports to other users and researchers after publication of report

17 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Why share data? Permits further analysis of data by researchers Leads to greater benefit in terms of maximizing the results of the survey by –Providing more insights into situation of children and women in each country –Providing more valuable information for planning of programmes Leads to greater confidence in survey results

18 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop MICS4 Data Processing Workshop Goal: modify standard data entry and processing program files to reflect country questionnaires Structure –Introduction of software –Lecture: Overview of topic –Practical: apply topic to your country Review of adaptations during (and after) the workshop

19 Data Processing Workshop Agenda Days 1-9: CSPro Days 10-12: SPSS Day 13: Archiving MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

20 MICS4 Data Processing Workshop Who will participate? –Only staff responsible from data entry and/or data processing (from implementing agency) Experts in data entry and/or processing Prior expertise in data entry supervision and/or data processing 2-3 participants per country technical –UNICEF staff are not expected to participate unless they are directly involved in data entry and processing due to technical nature of the workshop MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

21 What they will bring home after 2 nd workshop –MICS4 Standard programs (CSPRO) –MICS4 Standard SPSS tabulation programs –Documentation (Manual, editing guidelines, GPS tracking form and more) –Presentations –A copy of adapted data entry and processing program files –A copy of CSPRO 4.0 –A license for SPSS 18.0

22 Challenges Not all countries in the region will be at the same stage of survey implementation Workshop is most productive for countries that finalized their questionnaires and have not started data collection Option to participate data processing workshops in other regions [if any] MICS4 Survey Design Workshop
