The APHRC Microdata Portal is now active. The portal is a web-based platform designed to publish metadata and documentation, and share qualitative and quantitative datasets from research studies by the Center since its inception in 2001. The datasets are freely made available in widely used and easily convertible formats (e.g. Stata, SPSS) to all partners, researchers, academicians and post-graduate students (for their theses-related work).
Users can go through the platform, review the studies and decide to request datasets. They will have to login (using their username and password if already registered) or register online before submitting any data request. Once logged in, users will be asked to fill in the data request form online. After a request is submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to the user. Data requests will be handled by APHRC within a maximum of ten working days, after which a notification email will be sent to the user. If the request is approved, the email will provide instructions on how to download the requested datasets at no cost.
