Niger: Survey Metadata Production Workshop in Niger (April 2014)

Country / Regional Activity: Niger
Date of Event: 28/04/2014

At the request of the National Institute of Statistics of Niger (INS) , the ADP carried out a Survey Metadata Production Workshop from April 28 – May 2, 2014 in Dosso. A total of twenty-eight staff members from various departments of INS Niger attended the workshop to document twenty-three surveys. At the end of the workshop, INS successfully documented the majority of their surveys and the remaining will be documented over the course of June. The documented surveys are currently being finalized and will soon be posted on their on-line catalog (ANADO).

The workshop was facilitated by ADP regional consultants Mr. Léandre Ngogang from Cameroon and Mr. Thierry Salmon from France. The opening session was chaired by the Secretary General of INS. In his speech, he referred to axe 4 of Niger’s National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) that is dedicated to archiving microdata. In this sense, he encouraged the participants to focus on documenting the most recent surveys and to continue documenting and archiving as a standard practice.

The ADP will continue to provide support to INS to ensure that their staff have the necessary experience regarding documentation and to develop their microdata dissemination policy.
