How to analyse
Qualitative data related to women and girls’ experiences of participation and the level of acceptance of their participation by family and community members, should be analysed to identify trends and patterns in responses. Unique but interesting responses should also be documented. A summary of this analysis should be presented to the program/project management team for discussion and possible strategy revision/adaptation agreed if necessary. Further investigation/follow-up data collection regarding particular trends/responses may also be required for further clarity.
For the quantitative data related to changes in women and girls’ perceived ability to influence decisions at community and family/household levels, the number of respondents providing a “improved” or “somewhat improved” should be added and divided by the total number of respondents (excluding those who provided “don’t know” as a response), and multiply by 100.
