  2. The most valuable of all talents is that of never use two words when one will do Thomas Jefferson

  3. A-PLANNING THE STUDY A number of steps are required from the moment of decision to undertake a study, until the practical preparation can commence

  4. B-PREPARING THE STUDY a) b) c) Selecting the survey site: Choose a central survey site , to which a predermined number of subjects are invited each day, Characteristics of a survey site 1- Indoors or Shamians 2- Adequate waiting ------- 3- Simple flow of subjects 4- Privacy for anthropometric measurements. 5- Quiet environment for BP measurement

  5. C- PREPARING FOR THE STUDY a) Obtaining Approval b) Choosing the team leader c) Selecting the study site d) The Pre-Study census e) Preparing the chosen subjects for the study f) Team training g) Quality assurance

  6. D- CONDUCTING THE STUDY a) Study Procedures 1) Registration 2) Fasting blood sample 3) Glucose drink 4) Two hour blood sample b) Anthropometry c) Questionnaire d) Blood pressure Continued

  7. Continued e) Final assessment f) Non response g) Over response h) Providing general health care I) Providing feed back j) Transport of specimens

  8. E- SPECIFICATION OF DATA TO BE COLLECTED a) • Collect data related to the topics of immediate interest • Resist to collect “opportunistic” data which serve no obvious purpose

  9. 1) Core data: Include basic demographic information, medical and family history, lifestyle factors, key physical parameters (BP,GT,Anthropometry and blood lipids) 2) Optimal data: Addition material which might include dietry habits, genetic markers, evidence of disease complications etc

  10. b) Specification of study procedure c) Specification of Laboratory procedures d) Choice of statistical methods e) Selecting the most appropriate range f) Preparing the survey form (example of our survey form for National Survey) Continued

  11. Continued g) Selecting the survey sample a) Simple random sampling b) Multistage sampling c) Cluster sampling h) Sample size determination i) Choosing the team size and composition j) Preparing a written protocol

  12. F- HANDLING THE DATA Data Entry a) Data entry / editing b) Data verification Data Analysis a) Create variable b) Run Analysis c) Create Charts

  13. G-PREPAING THE SURVEY FORM • Examiner enters into appropriate box the numerical code of the correct response • Almost all coded responses are to be found at the right hand margin of this form • The form only includes key item and is short enough to fit on two sides of a single sheet of paper

  14. H-SELECTING THE SURVEY SAMPLE • Simple Random Sampling: Subjects normally recruited from a list such as recent electoral role. The method is labour intensive • Multistage Sampling: The community is first divided into subgroups on the basis of ethnicity, ----------, socio-economical level, age group or sex. Multistage sampling is useful when over sampling under representative groups is required e.g, a minority population or elderly age groups • Cluster Sample: Simplest method in Procter

  15. I- PREPARING THE REPORT a) Introduction b) Survey methods c) Response d) Results e) Discussion f) Conclusions g) Tables and figures
