Types of Data Entry
Single Data Entry is a method where the data is entered through some interface which performs validity and range checking of all data entered. The "double entry" method is a proven process for achieving very high accuracies. Using this method, all the data is first entered into a data file. Then the data is entered again and compared against the first data during the second data entry process known as "verification", Discrepancies are brought to the attention of the data entry supervisor and they are resolved in real time during data entry.
At Rohitah International, we design data entry environment in such a manner where we establish consistency of data entry transactions, minimize input actions and ensure compatibility of data entry with data display. Proper designing/ logics in the data entry interface avoids duplication in data entry. Our developers are very experienced of the specific data management requirements to design the appropriate data entry software which supports "single/double entry" as per your need.
Large-scale social surveys provide an inexpensive and easily accessible source of information on a wide range of topics including education, health, economics, demography, politics, and criminal justice. There are many advantages to analyzing data from large-scale social surveys. The data are usually extensive in content and coverage of the target population, these surveys are typically conducted by large government agencies or private survey organizations that have experienced interviewers, well-designed and tested survey instruments, and the expertise to design efficient sampling plans.
The data management of large-scale surveys plays an important role in the quality of data collection and monitoring of work in the field. The data entry mode may be Offline or Online using CAPI should be supportive in providing the field check tables on certain key indicators and should also provide sufficient information about the quality of information being collected. At Rohitah, we not only provides the data in the digital domain for final analysis but also provides midterm evaluation reports to closely monitor the quality of field work.
Data entry process can be a simple one which can be done on-site or off-site. Onsite data entry is easier because everything will be done under your direct supervision. On the other hand, you can choose to have the data entry done offsite due to lack of office space, limited availability of required software and hardware for the work.
Rohitah International is an expert in providing onsite as well offsite data entry services.We provides data entry services at a very fast turnaround time with almost zero percent errors. We use state-of-the-art technology to ensure that we provide our customers with quality services. When you outsource data entry services to Rohitah International, you can be assured of high standards of security and confidentiality of data.
When it comes to finding the right Data management solution, one of your first decisions will be whether you need a web-based or offline desktop based solution.
Web-based has a few obvious advantages in that it’s accessible everywhere and there’s no software to install. But when it comes to more critical, sensitive data, faster entry of data than an offline desktop based solution is a smarter choice.
Availability of internet is vital in case of online data entry whereas software version control needs to be managed critically in the case of offline data entry. In both of the scenario, Rohitah International is well equipped with sufficient infrastructure and technically competent manpower to provide you the best data entry environment.
SPSS and Excel are the great platforms of analysis the data so direct data entry in SPSS/Excel is cost effective and quite accurate. It can help organizations quickly and securely gather the information they need.
Using SPSS, data management is quite straightforward. SPSS is designed to make certain that the output is kept separate from data itself. Data is stored in a spreadsheet-like table similar to that of Microsoft Excel and an output file is separate. SPSS also comes with more techniques of screening or cleaning the information in preparation for further analysis.
With Excel's simple built-in data entry tools, we can improve both speed and accuracy and then use it for further insight and analysis of data. Work with loads of data using Microsoft Excel, which provide endless opportunities in regards to data management, enable you to organize your information in a systematic manner. Formulas, tables, filters, macros, linking from other sheets, a share of multiple spreadsheets with team members are the key features of excel which make it suitable for direct data entry in Excel.
Qualitative data cover a wide variety of information and research methods that most often take the form of written or verbal statements that are collected using unstructured or semi-structured interviews or questionnaires whereas Quantitative data collection methods are surveys and interviews which involve the use of structured questionnaires or any other tools used in collecting numerical data.
The Qualitative research is designed to target audience's range of behavior and the perceptions that drive it with reference to specific topics or issues. The results of qualitative research are descriptive rather than predictive, data collected through in-depth interviews, observation and focus group discussions which are open-ended and unstructured which also provides an opportunity to observe, record and interpret non-verbal communication (i.e., body language, voice intonation) as part of a respondent's feedback.
As we know that Qualitative research is usually better for exploring and understanding while quantitative research is generally better for confirming and clarifying. These twos complement each other and never substitutes to each other. So nowadays, researchers are combining the two approaches in order to increase the validity of their findings. At Rohitah, we develop the data entry software equally good for qualitative and quantitative data entry which enables the researchers to do analysis on both types of data.
Data Entry can be done through software developed in cspro which collects data for surveys created by the free Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) suite. We also develop the software for computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) on Android phones and tablets. The key feature of developing the data entry software in cspro are: easy to use graphical user interface for survey data collection, Collect data without a glitch on both Android and Windows platforms for census and survey questionnaire, Automatically synchronize questionnaires and data using Dropbox or FTP for online data entry and backup, Export data to Excel, SPSS and other formats as per need, Implement complex logic and Skip patterns, Robust error and consistency checking, development of FCT, frequency tables and Cross tabulation using logics and Multiple language support.
Some research organizations demand Epi Info package / Access based software packages for their data entry work. Epi is free and open source software for epidemiologic statistics and widely used public domain program for simple or programmed data entry and data documentation whereas Microsoft Access is the efficient database software that enables users to handle large volumes of data. It has various features and components that make it very simple to use and highly beneficial for data entry work.
The tools developed in Epi info are used for rapid questionnaire design, data entry and validation, data analysis including mapping and graphing, and the creation of reports. Some features of it are double entry verification, the list of ID numbers in several files, codebook overview of data, date added to backup and encryption procedures. We develop tools in Epi which also provides evaluation statistics for counts and measurements in descriptive and analytic studies, stratified analysis with exact confidence limits, sample size, and power calculations etc.
Some of the key benefits of making use of MS Access are user-friendly, highly efficient and easy integration with other software packages. It is very simple for just about any individual to learn to work with Access based data entry package and at the same time it can integrate large volumes of data directly into the database. The other features like centralized access , user based restriction on certain portion of database, avoiding redundancy and inconsistency, automated backup and recovery, can easily be incorporated into the packages developed using access.
Qualitative data cover a wide variety of information and research methods that most often take the form of written or verbal statements that are collected using unstructured or semi-structured interviews or questionnaires. In the case of verbal statements sometimes Audio files are generated using microphones or audio recorders.
At Rohitah, we transcript the audio files in English/Hindi language in which the interview conducted without changing the meaning of the statements. The output files can directly be fed into qualitative software like Atlas.ti/NVivo etc.
Some research organization requires all records in digital domain like scanning of the hardcopy questionnaire and other survey tools. This enables them to store data for later use without wasting their store rooms to keep the hard copy of the materials. Digitally converted data available in computer enables them to easily retrieve data and also they can access it remotely whenever requires.
We convert all tools and related documents into pdf/jpg/png format insufficient pixels so that all content can easily be viewed and it also takes minimum storage space on a computer.
