Cameroon is regarded by many as a champion in its sub-region, and considered as a success story for the ADP. Results obtained with ADP support include:

Survey microdata made accessible

  1. National Survey catalog available on INS website (see URL above).
  2. All available nationally representative surveys and censuses documented, archived and disseminated.
  3. Capacity built and sustained within INS to document, archive and disseminate microdata - as standard processes of every survey undertaken. About 15 INS staff trained on microdata management standards, tools and practice; top management sensitized.

Quality of future surveys improved

  1. Detailed quality assessments of education data performed (with UIS/UNESCO), with improved methodologies and survey / administrative questionnaires designed and implemented (Ministry of Secondary Education).
  2. National on-line repository for survey standards (concepts, questions, classifications) being established.
