Training in the Electronic Data Collection System (EDACS)

Our team was trained in the use of eDACs, an automated paperless system developed by the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN).

This partnership with STATIN is a match made in statistics! We will collect data using tablet computers in our upcoming project with companies across Jamaica.

Special thanks to Mr.Howard Hamilton. director of the information and technology (IT) division, Ms. Tannecia Blackwood, Mr. Boyd Goodin and the rest of the STATIN team for accommodating us.
