Introduction
Introduction

  • The Mapped Instrument is a tool that guides you in matching your site specific Instrument and materials to the generic STEPS tools.


Why map your instrument
Why map your Instrument

  • By aligning your site specific Instrument, you will be able to use:

    • Data entry tools

    • Data analysis and reporting tools:

      • Fact Sheet and Fact Sheet Analysis Guide

      • Data Book

      • Automated Epi Info analysis programmes

  • Provides documentation on:

    • Instrument used

    • Data entry values



Mapping your instrument
Mapping your Instrument

  • Go to the first question in your site-specific Instrument.

  • Locate this question in the Mapped Instrument.

  • Continue to the next question in your site-specific Instrument and repeat steps 2 and 3 above. Continue until all questions from the site-specific Instrument have been mapped.

  • For new or altered questions you need to:

    • Record the new question at the bottom of the associated section of the Mapped Instrument.

    • Give the question a generic STEPS code.*

* All additional questions are given the code of X plus a numeric value (X1, X2,X3…)

Transforming your dataset
Transforming your Dataset

  • Identify records that do not match the generic STEPS responses.

  • Identify records in your dataset that do not match

    • the generic STEPS code/variable name and

    • the data types of the generic dataset

  • Change the structure of your dataset to match the STEPS dataset.


Moving your dataset into the steps database
Moving your dataset into the STEPS database

  • Instructions are available in Section 3 of the Mapping and Transforming your Materials document for moving your dataset into the following software:

    • EpiData

    • Epi Info version 6 and 3.3.2

    • Microsoft Access

    • Microsoft Excel

    • SPSS


Check your new steps database
Check your new STEPS database

  • After moving your dataset to the STEPS database you should have:

    • Microsoft Access database that is called STEPS.mdb

    • Within STEPS.mdb two tables

      • Programs

      • MasterDataSet (this needs to be the name of your country dataset)


Matching your dataset variable names
Matching your dataset- variable names

  • Select the 1st instance where the variable names do not match.

  • Open STEPS.mdb

  • Right click on MasterDataSet and select Design View.

  • Locate and change the name of the variable that needs to be changed in the Field Name column.



Matching your dataset data types
Matching your dataset- data types

  • Select the 1st instance where the data types do not match.

  • Open STEPS.mdb.

  • Right click on MasterDataSet and select Design View.

  • Locate the name of the variable that needs to be changed in the Field Name column.

  • Click on Data Type of the variable and select the appropriate data type .
