Data analysis and report writing (DARW) Workshop, 12th July to 10th September 2021

The Brisbane Accord Group (BAG) under the leadership of the Pacific Community (SPC), the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), is conducting a data analysis and report-writing online course.

This course aims to strengthen the capacity of countries in the analysis of administrative data generated from Civil Registration systems with an objective of providing evidence on the performance of Civil Registration systems and; making this data available for policy and planning (where it meets a sufficient level of quality and completeness). The course also over-achingly aims at supporting countries to identify systems weaknesses, and to derive strategies and practical solutions for systems improvement.

Specifically the course will:

  1. Assist countries to complete a vital statistics report that illustrates the current levels and trends of births, deaths and cause of death as recorded by civil registration system;

  2. Assist countries to establish the level of completeness of their civil registration systems in regard to registration of live births, deaths and causes of death;

  3. Assist participants to build proficiency in key analytical, interpretation and presentation skills required to meet regional, national and international reporting requirements;

  4. Assist participants to develop key skills to critically appraise their data collection systems and processes, and to identify key system weaknesses and practical solutions.

Sixteen participants from Civil Registration, Health and Statistics offices of Palau, Vanuatu, Samoa, Marshall islands will attend the course.
