About CDP

The Center for Development Policy (CDP) is a Pan-African non-profit and non-partisan think tank that exists to contribute to the development of African countries through policy analysis and capacity building. CDP prioritizes endogenous development solutions and promotes local and empirically tested innovations that have contributed to development in Africa. CDP works with local partners to study, document, and share lessons and best practices. Our uniqueness is that we not only offer policy advice and analysis to organizations but also build their capacities through training and technical support in order to undertake evidence-based development interventions.

At CDP, we offer different short-term training and other tailor-made training requested by organizations. CDP courses are offered by CDP experts and associates from within the country or abroad.

It is against this background, CDP is organizing a training workshop on “Introduction to Data Analysis using STATA”.

  1. Course Description

The dissemination of research and policy analysis skills is part of the mandate of the Center for Development Policy (CDP). Providing practical data analysis skills is a first step to creating a mass of competent policy analysts, researchers and data analysts.

The goal of this introductory course in data analysis using STATA is to equip the participants with the practical skills necessary to manage and analyze quantitative data using STATA, one of the modern data analysis software programs. This includes specific skills in data importation, cleaning, manipulation, summarization, graphical representation, regression analysis among other techniques. By the end of the training, the participants are expected to have learned how to handle raw data from quantitative surveys, prepare the data in usable form that suits their research agenda, and conduct simple descriptive and inferential statistics. Participants will also learn how to tabulate and visualize quantitative data and present outputs in policy reports in formats easily understandable to non-technical audiences like policymakers.
