The ICT Division is also responsible for data processing of different surveys conducted either by PIDE or with the collaboration of donors like World Bank, ADB, UNDP, UNICEF, IDRC, DFID, etc.

The data entry applications with extensive data entry checks are developed in-house to enter data from the questionnaires of the surveys to the database. The data is checked and verified many times during the entry and cleaning/processing phase. Once the data entry is complete and the data is verified, a complete documentation including codebooks, questionnaires and organization of data files is prepared. The ICT Division staff also helps the researchers in analyzing data using statistical software like SPSS and STATA for statistical analysis, cross tabulation, and graphs for their research reports and papers. Thematic maps are also produced using ArcView GIS software.

The following data sets including two panel data sets are managed in-house by the ICT Division:
  • Pakistan Rural Household Survey (Panel Data)
  • Pakistan Socio-Economic Survey (Panel Data)
  • National Nutrition Survey
  • Poor Communities of Pakistan Survey
  • Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund Survey
