Egypt National CensusInfo Training

2-6 May 2010, Cairo, Egypt

A national CensusInfo training was conducted at the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) in Cairo, Egypt, from 2 to 6 May 2010. This national training was intended to develop the national census technical teams’ capacities to adapt CensusInfo, to its full potential as platform for disseminating census data. The participating CAPMAS staff learnt various processes involved in the adaptation of CensusInfo including preparation of CensusInfo template and database, importing data, language translation and customization of the software package. The sessions also included hands-on training on using CensusInfo User Interface and Database Administration applications as well as in introduction in the process of web-enabling the CensusInfo database. The participants created a first version of an Egypt CensusInfo application including maps and a subset of data/indicators based on the 2006 Census in Egypt.
