The Doctoral Programme in Public Health Science (PHSP) welcomes all doctoral students and researchers at KI to the the first seminar in our seminar series: Data management and survey design in quantitative research.

Across three sessions we will present the basic principles of asking questions and data management, starting from project inception, all the way through to archiving. With a focus on paper and electronic surveys, we will use real-world examples to highlight nuance and challenges researchers often encounter.

This first session will cover key data management concepts that include what should be considered throughout the study starting from design to analysis. The session will give insight into the practice and challenges of data management. The examples will be drawn from real-life field examples.
