The project includes a series of evaluation surveys conducted over the course of 100 weeks. For the telephone interviews, 100WEEKS decided to use our CATI module directly on tablets. Applying such a solution made 100WEEKS able to limit the initial costs of organizing the call center and workstations. It also provides the organization with the flexibility to pack and move the Pop-Up call center easily to wherever the next project will be held. The actual calling is conducted directly with tablets via its’ GSM modules. A part of the interviews will be held directly on-site (face-to-face) with the use of the CAPI app of-line when there is no mobile phone coverage. Survey (both CATI and CAPI) and sample data collected during the interviews are being stored on centralized servers in the Netherlands where data is undergoing further processing and analysis.
For more details watch the webinar where Joris Meys (a statistician, R programmer and lecturer at the Ghent University in Belgium) together with Johannes von Engelhardt (responsible for designing and overseeing the data collection processes at 100WEEKS) will use the R to transform, in real-time, data into a story of 100 African women on their journey out of extreme poverty.
