This brief was developed by an interdisciplinary group of Costa Rican public health professionals who participated in a long-term capacity building process to promote secondary analysis of the 2010 Survey of Sexual and Reproductive Health. With technical assistance provided by MEASURE Evaluation, teams of participants (1) defined a research question that is based on existing literature, (2) drafted a basic analysis proposal, including dummy tables, (3) received a Stata training and software and conducted a basic bivariate analysis of the survey data, (4) presented and interpreted the results in a research brief, and (5) disseminated the findings to national authorities.
