The operations of coding, data entry and processing of questionnaires are fully incorporated within LMS-CSA structure and are conducted by a team under the leadership of a Data Processing Manager, together with :

  • Codifiers
  • Data entry operators and decoders
  • Statisticians
  • If required, this permanent staff is complemented by additional resources.

The data processing center offers its services to different centers of LMS-CSA but can also undertake, on behalf of external customers, data entry of questionnaires and provide deliverables in the form of data files (ASCII, Excel, Quanvert or sav) or raw data tables (cross tabulation and frequency table).

For data processing, the data processing center is equipped with statistical analysis software such as SPSS, Quantum and Excelstat.
