SRTC-SP: Data Management and Basic Statistics Software for SRTC’s Training Programs
Author: Eliezer A. Albace & Jessie Joseph Q. Gotengco
As the leading statistical research and training agency in the country, the Statistical Research and Training Institute (SRTC) is mandated to develop a comprehensive and integrated research and training program on statistics. To aid this mandate, the Statistical Research and Training Center – Statistical Package (SRTC-SP) is developed to be rolled-out to trainees of SRTC coming from even the remotest areas. SRTC-SP is a software specifically designed for the trainees of SRTC’s Data Management and Basic Statistics training. It has three major software packages: (1) a database management system; (2) a graphical presentation software; and (3) a statistical analysis system. These three very useful facilities are all incorporated in one software which allows the user to easily manipulate, analyze and present data without going in and out of the software. Moving forward, the software is proposed to be developed as a full-pledge statistical package suitable not only for training programs but also for research.
