Advanced Data Processing and Management using Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) Course


The Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) is a tool for entering, editing, tabulating and disseminating data from surveys and censuses.

During this course, participants will be introduced to features of the program that streamline the creation of dynamic and powerful applications. Participants will learn about ways to automate data processing tasks, creating batch for message error, Creating then Dependent Verification Designing CAPI applications in CSPro for Android, and how to create advanced tables. Participants will also learn from each other about how other organizations handle data processing tasks. The CSPro programming language will be the primary focus of the workshop.


4 days


The course is designed for intermediate users of the Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro).It is course is not geared towards subject-matter specialists, though some may find it useful if they are heavily involved in CSPro data processing tasks. Ideally, participants will have fully processed at least one census or survey in CSPro and can easily write basic CSPro logic.
