CHL Teams and CHL Coordinating Center Collect and Validate Regional Data

HONOLULU, HI.   Data is the name of the game as CHL heads the last 7 months of this 5-year project.  Data collection is critical to getting baseline numbers as well as impact measurements.  All teams are working hard to collect and enter data in their home location, and then the CHL Coordinating Center in at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa double checks the data for accuracy and completeness – it is a lot of work on both ends of the process.  Data then becomes part of peer-reviewed articles as well as community research reports.  From the Hawai‘i site report this quarter is just one part of the story . . .

“Climbing this mountain of data takes a team of people! Since February 2015, 18 students have been hired and trained for the task of data entry and data management, with 14 data entry stations. This super team is led by Fenfang Li, Dmitry Krupitsky, Mira Sharma, and Elise Leimomi Dela Cruz-Talbert who make sure the whole process runs smoothly.  The CHL IT team, composed of Michael DeBusk, Erik Hill and Jeff Tamashiro, has also been essential in providing needed technical support, such as setting up data entry stations and conducting data transfers.”
