Survey Research Methods and Data Analysis: Tools and Methodologies

Empowered with SPSS (Venue: Islamabad) 

Dates: February 16-18, 2016___________________________________________________________________________

This training is specifically designed for those professionals who are looking to learn key steps, tools, and methods to complete simple to complex surveys for any of socioeconomic and political domains. Surveys are requirements for almost every field of development as projects require benchmarks before they are implemented but surveys only become viable and quotable if they actually represent the population from which samples were drawn. This is not a full story. How to analyze survey data is another important task that requires specific skills, particularly when it comes to answer questions that were not directly asked in the survey questionnaire.
