The use of computers in field research

, : The use of computers in field research. Journal for Farming Systems Research Extension 3(2): 97-118

With careful use, microcomputers can increase the quality of survey and questionnaire data collected by field researchers in developing countries. A number of simple-to-use computer programs are available that ease data entry and allow for immediate statistical manipulations of this data. Additionally, these programs are able to quickly verify field data through a variety of automated checks.
