ADP recently visited National Statsitcs Ofiices (NSOs) of capitals in Cambodia, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sri Lanka and Zambia with plans to reach out to users and expand work programs to line ministries and non-official statistics producers. As the NSOs in the six countries work to improve their National Data Archive (NADA) and finalize the microdata dissemination policy draft or revision, ADP is planning to support a series of microdata outreach workshops engaging microdata producers and users. The workshops will serve the dual purpose of raising users’ awareness of existing microdata and dissemination policies, while helping data producers learn about users’ needs and feedback.


ADP is also in the process of expanding its assistance in survey documentation and dissemination to line ministries and non-official data producers. In Zambia, the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Agriculture expressed interest in embarking on an ADP program and attending the data management workshop with the Central Statistical Office (CSO). In Malawi, a data documentation workshop is scheduled with the participation of another six line-ministries.


Likewise in Mozambique, nine line-ministries, including the Bank of Mozambique are collaborating with the Instituto Nacional de Estatística (INE) to archive their data with ADP support.


ADP is also in the process of engaging non-governmental data producers such as University of Malawi and Cambodia Development Resource Institute to help them document and disseminate existing survey data. More details here.
