SurveyCTO’s new monthly webinar series has gotten off to a great start! Join us in our second webinar on August 14, 2019 at 1 PM UTC / 9 AM ET to learn how to update your household rosters over time by combining baseline and endline rosters. Doing so will help you to more easily and accurately capture household changes in your survey project and ultimately improve the quality of your data.

A member of our expert support team will lead a 20-minute presentation and then open the discussion to any of your questions. If you miss the live webinar, you can watch the recording that we’ll post in our video library.

What you’ll learn

It’s a common requirement in longitudinal household surveys to capture the current composition of a household roster. But suppose that some of the household members captured at the baseline have either left or passed away. And suppose that the household has new members, due to birth, marriage, or other circumstances. How do you account for both new and previous members of a household throughout the life of a survey?

In this second installment of SurveyCTO’s webinar series, we’ll show you how to update your household rosters by combining baseline and endline household rosters into one list in the SurveyCTO platform. We’ll do so by assembling a choice list that captures all the members of a household, both new and previous. This choice list can be created in an endline survey, as well as in any midline surveys.

Join us to learn more about the following:

  • Repeat groups.
  • Pre-loading data.
  • Choice filtering.
  • Dynamic choice lists.
