Posted on


Data analysis methods in CLM (1)

This guide explains some key concepts and processes involved in analyzing qualitative and
quantitative data collected through community-led monitoring (CLM).

The aim of this guide is to equip community-led monitoring implementers with some basic skills in data analysis to help them identify the challenges and gaps in health service quality, access, and delivery, and in turn, to suggest possible solutions. The guide discusses the importance of, and the steps involved in, the integration of qualitative and quantitative findings when a mixed methods data analysis approach is applied to CLM.

This guide was developed with support from Community-led Monitoring Centrally Managed Limited Investment of the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM).
