1. Introduction

Today’s policy makers, business owners and government leaders need correct, relevant and timely information to make the right decisions at the right time for the right people. It is then imperative that this data is collected with the utmost efficiency and accuracy so that those decisions will have the highest possible impact. SurveyCTO software is then the answer to those needs. SurveyCTO is the leading CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interview) software used by researchers, policy makers and other information-dependent people all over the world to solve their most challenging problems. It’s fast, able to be deployed on smartphones, tablets and computers. It gathers data in a customizable survey form and thereby cutting short the time that it would take to enter the collected data. It is also co-integrated with STATA, another statistical software used by researchers and social scientists all over the world.

Since Rwanda now aspires to Middle Income Country status by 2035 and High-Income Country status by 2050, it is imperative that both public and private sector change the way they make decisions. The decisions that will move this country forward will need to be more evidence-based and highly calibrated to the beneficiaries needs.

This training will be conducted by the Economic Policy Research Network (EPRN) and the Research and Capacity Building for Sustainable Development (RCSD) and will be conducted in English, for two hours a day, for four days.
