Managing Data in CommCare
A starter guide to inspecting, cleaning and exporting data in CommCare.
Why did we create the Managing Data in CommCare Starter Guide?
1) Organizations around the world use CommCare applications to capture data efficiently and ensure timely access to their data for analysis and decision making. However, even with a well-designed application, data submitted by mobile workers isn’t always clean and ready for analysis.
2) Without regular cleaning, incomplete, inaccurate, or irrelevant data can make an entire dataset less reliable and harder to use. That’s why, in addition to our data collection capabilities, we offer tools within the CommCare web platform to inspect and clean raw data.
We know that organizations want to get the most out of their data, so we wrote this guide to share the tools available within CommCare to help users do just that.
What will you learn from using this guide?
This Starter Guide introduces key features in CommCare for effective data management, which can help lead to better analysis and greater insights into performance, progress, and impact. The guide is organized into two parts: Exporting Data and Inspecting and Cleaning Data.
