Description

Description of data capture The day-to-day statistical and data management of the project was overseen by Jessica Nakiyingi-Miiro, a statistical epidemiologist in MRC-UVRI. The questionnaire was self-completed by participants with clarifications provided by Research Assistants present in the room as needed. Data was subsequently entered into a Microsoft Access database by Research Assistants and the Data Management Assistant. Data checks were subsequently performed in three stages. First, each questionnaire was manually checked for completeness by the Research Assistants and the Data Management Assistant following collection. If data was found to be missing, follow-up was performed with the relevant student. Second, data was entered into a Microsoft Access database by Research Assistants and the Data Management Assistant. Initial range and consistency checks were performed by the Data Management Assistant and Data Manager. Queries identified were resolved promptly by consulting the students, and the database updated. Third and finally, checks were performed by the Data Manager and Statistician who also generated/transformed variables for analysis using a ‘do file’ in STATA. Statistical analyses were conducted using Stata 14 (StataCorp, TX, USA).
