Details of trained Youth under Skill Development Training  Programme for Youth on Primary Data Collection and Field Survey





In recent years demand for data has increased manifold. For Government machinery it  is not possible to fulfill  all demands of data due to limited number of statistical personnel in DES and statistical cell of line departments. Also there is dearth of trained statistical persons in private sector. As a result whenever a survey is planned to be conducted with the help of personnel outsourced from private sector, quality  of data is  compromised. This is due to the fact that the persons deployed for collection of data are not exposed to statistical tools and have no experience in carrying out survey work. To overcome this handicap, it is proposed to  train unemployed youth in survey work and report writing. These persons will act as pool of statistically trained persons who can be utilised for statistical work by different governmental and non-governmental organization on payment basis. 



Under central sector scheme  'Support for Statistical Strengthening' SSS DES has set up training modules of 4 days  training Programe on 'Skill Development  for Youth  on Primary Data Collection and Field Survey'  in collaboration with Giri Institute of Development Studies, Aliganj, Lucknow. Eligibility criteria laid down for selection of candidates to be trained under the programme was graduation in at least any one of the subjects namely Maths,Statistics,Economics and Commerce.The training  was imparted to the youth in several batches so as  to prepare them  for field survey work and data collection.
