This week, PARIS21 is holding a microdata documentation workshop in Agboville, Côte d'Ivoire. The workshop is a legacy workshop that continues work from the Accelerated Data Program (ADP). Fifteen people are attending the workshop and a total of fifteen surveys have been documented. These surveys will be carefully reviewed for quality insurance and then published on the Institut National de la Statistique (INS) National Data Archive.
The Director General of the INS in Côte d'Ivoire opened the workshop with a welcome speech on the importance of strong and reliable microdata documentation. The workshop is being conducted by Julienne Aitchedji from the INS in Niger with organisational support from Jean de Dieu Kouassi from the INS in Côte d'Ivoire.
