Regional DHS/MIS Malaria Analysis Workshops Now Accepting Applications
The DHS Program is pleased to announce two eight-day "Regional DHS/MIS Malaria Analysis" Workshops. The first will be an Anglophone workshop in Tanzania from May 4-12. The second will be a francophone workshop in Senegal from June 1-9. The regional workshops will teach participants to analyze DHS/MIS data sets with a special focus on malaria data. The content of the workshop includes sampling/weighting of survey data, recoding variables, computation of malaria indicators, linear/logistic regression, and data use for decision making. Participants will work in teams of 2-3 people throughout the workshop to answer a pre-identified malaria-related research question through analysis of DHS/MIS data.
