From 21-25 January 2019, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), delivered another training on “Econometrics for Policy Analysis using STATA” as part of the capacity building activities under the Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project in Ebonyi State. The 27 participants (16 male, 11 female) were lecturers and researchers from Ebonyi State University, Alex Ekwueme Federal University and the University of Nigeria Nsukka.
The training was geared at equipping Nigeria’s analysts and researchers with knowledge and developing the skills required to analyse data and make available the evidence required by decisionmakers in the formulation of policy for country’s agricultural sector. Ijeoma Ochokwu, one of the training participants had this to say: “I appreciate you all for the kind training. Indeed, I have increased in knowledge, it was great having you guys around. That package or application [STATA] is simply the best for statistical analysis. Thanks once again and looking forward to learning more from you”.
The Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Nigeria) and is jointly implemented by Michigan State University and IFPRI’s Nigeria Strategy Support Program.
