Last modified: 2016-09-27


This workshop offers a hands-on, practical approach to creating and documenting both surveys and datasets with DDI and Colectica.

Participants will build and field a DDI-driven survey using their own questions or samples provided in the workshop. They will then ingest, annotate, and publish DDI dataset descriptions using the collected survey data. The course will cover the following DDI content areas:

Questionnaire Design

  • Survey Instruments
  • Questions
  • Concepts and Universes
  • Question banks

Dataset Documentation

  • Datasets and dataset layouts
  • Summary Statistics
  • Code Lists and Categories
  • Data harmonization with RepresentedVariables and ConceptualVariables

Attendees may optionally bring their own Windows laptops to participate in the hands-on exercises.
