Data analysis training in Samoa

As part of the Global Alliance for Chronic Disease project on Cost-Effectiveness of Salt Reduction in the Pacific Islands, Kathy Trieu from the George Institute conducted training on data analysis with Samoa Ministry of Health and Samoa Bureau of Statistics on 22 November 2016.

The aim of the training was to strengthen skills in using Excel, data cleaning, weighting, generating descriptive statistics and conducting a t-test using the Samoa salt survey as a case study.

After each topic was presented, attendees completed Excel exercises to apply and practice the skills they had learnt.
