CSPro For Android & Smartphones Course.(Naivasha, Kenya) 16th – 27th October 2017


This course will focus on building CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing) applications for enumeration using Android tablet and Smartphone’s’. Participants will learn about ways to adapt survey instruments to smaller screens, to ensure data quality through integrated data checks & to control the user interface and program flow using logic programming. Participants will also learn to build tool for survey management, tracking, and data transfer.
The workshop focuses on processing a population census or demographic survey, but participants are encouraged to bring any questionnaire relevant to their job responsibilities. It will be conducted in a hands-on, product-oriented environment. Each participant will have exclusive use of a computer, a tablet or Smartphone, and will receive the latest version of the CSPro software.

The course is designed for intermediate users of the Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) who currently use CSPro to implement CAPI or key from paper data processing systems and who desire a deeper understanding of techniques for implementing CAPI applications on Android. This course is not geared towards subject-matter specialists, though some may find it useful if they are heavily involved in CSPro data processing tasks. Ideally, participants will have fully processed at least one census or survey in CSPro and can easily write basic CSPro logic.
