Data collection and statistics play a pivotal role in ensuring that government services properly address issues on a national level says Australian Dr Mark Griffith.
Dr Griffith told FBC News, while many government institutions are doing research on certain areas of concern, there is still a need to ensure the effectiveness of statistics and information collected.
“We teach them basically when they do reserach, how do you do reserach, how to decide youur reserach studies, how to analog your data, or what data to collect, and how do you make sense of that data.”
Dr Griffith is facilitating a four day workshop for the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders at the Holiday Inn in Suva.
