Workshop for Population Health Study in Vietnamese Provinces
The workshop was aimed primarily at strengthening data analysis, working through some of the data issues that we have encountered, and producing a concrete data analyses plan that will enable groups examining Thai Nguyen, Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen and Vinh Long Provinces to move ahead to the analysis, interpretation and drafting of narrative reports. The collaboration of SSRC and the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences has produced a rich data set from the first round of a longitudinal study on population health that was collected from household survey, in depth interviews, facility survey and exit interviews. A new area for many participants was leanring to integrate quantitative and qualitative data. Attending the meeting were 17 Vietnamese researchers, two international advisors, and SSRC Vietnam Program Staff.
