Côte d'Ivoire: capacity being built in national statistical agencies on microdata management (October 2009)

Country / Regional Activity: Côte d'Ivoire
Date of Event: 02/10/2009

Two national IHSN toolkit trainings were organized in Agboville, Côte d’Ivoire, in the context of the implementation of the Accelerated Data Program in the country.

The first training was targeted at the National Statistical Office and 20 of its staff were trained on the Toolkit and are now proficient on its use. The documentation of about 20 of the NSO’s past surveys was initiated during the workshop. A national consultant is now finalizing the documentation.

The second training was targeted at the other national institutions involved in the production of microdata. The line ministries sent representatives (agriculture, health, education, etc.) as well as the Ecole Nationale de Statistique et d'Economie Appliquée (ENSEA). A specific support program has been agreed with ENSEA, which includes a dedicated Toolkit training, to be organized in December 2009.
