NewsKeep up with what is going on at EDI Global.
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.
Seasons Greetings to everyone from all of us at the EDI Group and best wishes for the New Year
