Bio-medical and other Supplementary Data Collection

Data comes in many forms

Many of our surveys now involve the collection of supplementary data from bio-medical to water quality and anthropometric data. We have qualified teams of nurses and other professionals, tools and equipment, enabling us to collect a range of supplementary data using our well established protocols:

GEO-CODED HOUSEHOLD DATA

GIS data has been collected and recorded in Surveybe software for all EDI surveys since 2006 using mobile GPS units. In addition, EDI has experience in using ARC GIS as well as web-based geo-visualizer tools to create maps plotting the locations of survey households

Bad Data; Bad Decisions

BIOMEDICAL DATA

Of micro-biological samples from respondents including blood, urine and stool samples to test for haemophilia, HIV,  as well as administering blood pressure and respirator rate tests

DIRECT OBSERVATION

Noting respondent behaviour and all activities undertaken by respondents

ADMINISTRATIVE DATA

At the facility level from schools, health centres, community leaders, enterprises, and local, regional and national government organisations

HEIGHT & WEIGHT MEASUREMENTS

Collection of anthro data using SECA scales, height boards, height rulers and measuring mats

WATER SAMPLING TESTING

At both household and facility level to measure the quality of water supply including turbidity, Free Chlorine Residual (FCR) and Coliform Microbial Density (CMD)

RAINFALL DATA

DISTANCE DATA USING PEDOMETER

To count distance as walked by the respondent. A careful protocol needs to be followed to ensure the length of the respondent’s step is accurately captured
