Zambia: Ministries join the CSO on sharing survey metadata (August 2013)

Country / Regional Activity: Zambia
Date of Event: 06/08/2013

A Survey Metadata Production Workshop was held in Lusaka, Zambia on August 6 - 10, 2013 for the Central Statistical Office (CSO), the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MoAL) and the Ministry of Education (MoE). A total of nineteen staff members successfully documented eleven surveys which are now in their final stage of quality control before being published in the CSO’s NADA Catalog: The workshop was co-facilitated by an expert sent from the CSA in Ethiopia to further promote collaboration between NSOs in microdata management. The CSO Zambia is now running the 4.1 version of the NADA catalog and remains committed to expanding the use of their NADA. Next steps include scheduling a microdata outreach workshop in November to further promote the use of microdata and provide a platform for facilitating user-producer dialogues.
