Helpful Hints: Routine Data Quality Assessment Abstract:

The routine data quality assessment (RDQA) tool has two components:

  1. The systems assessment is a qualitative approach to examining the overall structure and functions of a data management and reporting system.
  2. The data verification process gauges the timeliness, completeness, and accuracy of data that are collected and reported in the system.

The tool’s user manual can be found here: https://www.measureevaluation.org/resources/publications/ms-17-117.

This brief shares practical tips on using the tool, based on MEASURE Evaluation’s application of RDQA since 2007 in scores of countries. These hints chiefly apply to the data verification component of the tool.
