Two REDATAM workshops where conducted in Bolivia during the last two weeks, first in La Paz (17 to 21 March), and the second in Cochabamba (24 to 28 March). Bothe workshops successfully trained 50 participants from the INE (from the National Office as well as Departmental Offices) , the UDAPE, ministries, local governments, municipal governments and public universities in the use and processing of the 2012 census data for the generation of sociodemographic indicators using REDATAM.
Regarding the workshops, we were pleasantly surprised by the high demand to participate in both. Therefore, this demand will be accommodated in future workshops organized by INE with the strategic alliances of the UMSA Public Policy Observatory, the Development Science UMSA post graduate and the UMSS Population Studies Center.
