Fieldwork and data capturing

The Fieldwork and Data Capturing (FDC) unit offers the following data related services:

Fieldwork management

The unit conducts small and large scale data collection projects. Research programmes are assisted in the preparation, running and the administration of fieldwork activities.

Data capturing

For quantitative data double entry capturing is done. Following first entry, data is captured a second time to verify that the data captured is indeed correct. Quality control of 10% of the total captured questionnaires per project is done.
Captured data is concatenated to produce a raw data set which is then subjected to cleaning and editing before it is delivered to researchers for analysis.

Data transcription

The unit also transcribes interviews from audio recordings. If necessary, interviews are translated English during the transcription process.
