Data Entry

What_DC_Data Entry


An Emphasis on Precision

Data entry at the SESRC follows a three-step process: 1) coding questionnaires; 2) initial data input; 3) re-entry verification to control data error and to facilitate data cleaning. After initial data entry and verification is completed, all discrepancies in the data between the first and second entry are checked and corrected as needed, to ensure 100% validation.

We code quantitative and qualitative data, create data dictionaries and codebooks, and code information as numeric or text.
