Dear Cathy Garlick,

I am interested in the CSPro e-learning course but have some questions
before I sign up. Thank you in advance for any responses

1. I have STATA on a Macbook Pro. It seems this course is used for
CSPro on Windows - will it therefore not be appropriate for me?

2. My understanding is that CSPro is about data entry not processing
tables. However, I am also told that Demographic and Health Surveys
(DHS) produces the tables in their reports using CSPro, not STATA nor
SPSS. Could you/your course help me learn how to use CSPro to
replicate DHS tables? Can CSPro really be used to produce the DHS
tables?

3. Apart from the orientation session, can all other course elements
be taken at anytime during the relevant week? I will be working full
time, and just wonder if the course has set hours I need to be excused
from the day job.

Thanks!

French
