Data Archiving and Processing

On June 26-27, 2008, CRRC-Armenia held a methodological training on data archiving and processing conducted by Karine Sahakyan. The training was based of the regional event recently conducted in Tbilisi by Gary Pollock, a professor of Sociology from UK. The follow up trainings became traditional, when one or more of the participants of the regional training share knowledge and skills with their Armenian counterparts.

The training was designed to promote understanding of the need to systematically archive and document data; to increase ability to differentiate data types, structures and ability to use SPSS syntax to perform data derivation, data merging and analysis and to promote understanding of user guides for prospective data users.
