As part of efforts towards strengthening Nigeria’s capacity for greater evidence-based policy processes in agriculture by increasing the capacity of Nigerian analysts to undertake and make widely available relevant evidence-based policy analysis, on 2-4 May 2018, a team of three (3) trainers from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)’s Nigeria Strategy Support Program (NSSP) facilitated a training course on “Introduction to Survey Data Analysis using Stata” for 19 (12 males and 7 females) researchers and faculty of Delta State University in Asaba, Delta State.
The training was designed to enhance participants’ ability to manage, analyze, and report findings from various types of economic data. Participants received insight on how to handle data for evidence-based decision making. The training course was well-received and appreciated with participants expressing satisfaction for both course content and delivery.
The training course is part of capacity building activities of the Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project, which is jointly implemented by IFPRI-NSSP and Michigan State University with the generous funding of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Nigeria).
