      INTRODUCTION
      Research, Data Management, Graphics & statistical analysis has always been integral parts of development work and has been playing a critical role towards achieving of Sustainable development Goals (SDGs). As a result, knowledge of research methodologies and application of statistical application software's to support data analysis in this era is very important. Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS), Stata and Microsoft Excel software has proved to be quite useful for the purpose of data management, graphical representation, and statistical analysis of data. These software are user-friendly and reduces the time/efforts that the researcher employ in research. This course aims at equipping participants with knowledge and vast skills which will enable them to use SPSS, STATA and Microsoft Excel in data management, graphics and statistical analysis. At the end of the course, participants will become familiar with using ICT tools and methods to conduct data collection, statistical analysis and reporting.
