Workshop: IFLS Data Utilization Workshop


Saturday-Sunday, July 21 – 22, 2018

The IFLS is a rich data set but it is also a very complex data set. The data are organized into hundred of files with different levels of observation. Linking the files with different levels of observation within a survey round requires a significant level of effort and linking observations between the longitudinal rounds is an even more complex task. Users of the data are expected to be familiar with statistical software and have good understanding of the survey instruments. The efforts required to be able to use the data are sometime daunting especially for policy makers or non-academic researchers.

As part of the effort to encourage utilization of the IFLS data, SurveyMeter organizes workshops targeted at audience who are about to start their research using the IFLS data sets. The workshops are offered at different levels: the Basic level for those who are not yet familiar with the Stata program and need to learn both Stata and how to analyze IFLS data sets using Stata; and the Intermediate level for those who are already familiar with Stata but need an efficient way to get acquainted with the data sets and to be able to analyze the data in a short time.  Instruction will be provided on how to merge, combine, reshape the data correctly for analysis. Instructions and illustrations will be provide on merging files at individual-to-individual level, individual-to-household, household-to-community, as well as Individual across survey rounds (longitudinal).  The workshop can also be customized to the audience’s needs. More recently, SurveyMeter team were invited to provide 3-day workshops to advanced researchers who are already well-versed in Stata but who still need guidance to navigate and use the IFLS data correctly and more efficiently.

Unlike IFLS data training offered by other institutions. SurveyMeter IFLS data utilization workshops are taught by staff with years of experience on collecting and using IFLS data.  Participants well get unique insights from the instructors who have been involved in the development of the modules and actual data collection of the IFLS.
