Country / Regional Activity: Colombia
Date of Event: 01/04/2013

As a part of the National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) strategy to promote improved microdata management in the Colombia Statistical System, DDI awareness events and basic training are being supported by the ADP. About 100 public officers from forty-three statistical agencies have been trained. Eighteen agencies are currently documenting their own microdatasets. Once these datasets are quality controlled, they are uploaded to DANEĀ“s NADA on-line survey catalog, which contains more than 100 different survey - with more than twenty public use microdata files ready for download.
