Message 49

Subject: Message 49 - Information offered by Janet Riley Date: Thu, 22 Mar 2001 18:25:19 +0100 From: RIO10-Moderator To: "'RIO10-L@mailserv.fao.org'" Dr. Eswaran is certainly correct in saying that there are few data in developing countries. But also what are available are poorly collected using methods that are inconsistent from one country to another. There is a need to focus on methods to assess change using good quality information, be it quantitative, qualitative, scientific or traditional. Examples of statistical problems in collection of indicators for multidisciplinary impact and sustainability assessment for case studies at project level can be seen on the website: http://www.iacr.bbsrc.ac.uk/res/depts/statistics/uniquaims/tuniquaims.html and which includes some of the results of the EU INCO-DEV project UNIQUAIMS that is nearing completion. The final report and other material will be included on the website before the middle of 2001. Janet Riley, Head of Overseas Biometrics Rothamsted Experimental Station
