National Analytical Center (Kazakhstan)

In partnership with UW–Madison, the National Analytical Center (NAC) in Astana, Kazakhstan, implemented a data archiving project through the Survey and Data Center (SDC), a subunit of the NAC. The SDC was tasked with creating a data archive, providing a survey research training program, and serving as a data collection center and policy analysis and evaluation department.

UW–Madison provided support for the data center in the form of consultations on data collection, analysis, and archiving as well as operational processes (i.e., workflow management, budgeting, staffing needs, outreach, ethics review, and more). UW also offered training workshops for SDC personnel.
