In the era of dematerialisation (i.e. a paperless era), ensuring the security of data collected in field is paramount. The recent examples of major data breaches and cyber-attacks calls for even further reflection and review of protocols to manage and store personally identifiable information.
A new paper co-authored by EDI’s Co-Founder Joachim De Weerdt along with Jed Friedman, Kathleen Beegle and John Gibson addresses food consumption data, measurements, response error, and how findings from a randomised survey experiment in Tanzania can influence survey design.
This year, 2018, sees EDI continue its research and data collection activities across a variety of sectors. We look forward to engaging with new clients and building on successful relationships with existing partners across East Africa and beyond; whilst always ensuring that the data we collect is accurate and of high quality.
