Afghanistan CSO building capacity on microdata management (Kabul, 6-10 March 2011)

Country / Regional Activity: Afghanistan
Date of Event: 06/03/2011

The ADP, in coordination with the Afghanistan Offices of the World Bank and UK Department for International Development (DFID), conducted a Microdata Management Toolkit training at the Central Statistics Organization (CSO) in Kabul on 6-10 March 2011. Participants came from three department of CSO. At the end of the training, participants recommended to the CSO management the documentation of their surveys using the Toolkit. The features highlighted in the recommendation were the Toolkit’s adoption of international standards for documentation and its being a single easy-to-use package for documentation, archiving and dissemination. The conduct of the training was deemed very timely as CSO is preparing for the Multi-Indicator Cluster Survey, National Risk and Vulnerability Assessment and the Population Census.
