For Emergency Nutrition Assessment there are currently mainly two
software programs in use. Epi Info and ENA for SMART. ENA for SMART is
focusing on Emergency Nutrition Assessment and therefore easy to
use. It has automatic reporting facilities which reduces
substantially the workload for doing surveys. On the other hand Epi
Info contains a module for making questionnaires and has much more
sophisticated statistical functions. We developed therefore a software
(ENA/EpiInfo) which combines the advantages of both systems. To
use this program please install first EpiInfo (www.cdc.gov/epiinfo/
) and afterwards download and install the following file
ENA/EpiInfo is automatically saved in a subdirectory
of EpiInfo (it should be c:\epiinfo\ena) where also all the data for
the surveys is stored (in the file ena.mdb). The following 4 demo
films show the basic functions of the software.
Making a new survey from scratch
Making a new survey by using the questionnaire template from ENA/EpiInfo
Analyzing the data of a survey coming from another software
Using the automatic report functions of ENA/EpiInfo
The handling of EpiInfo is sometimes not the most straightforward.
Therefore please check again one of these demofilms if there should be
any problem. With the mouse it is very easy to jump to the specific
position and to see exactly on how the program has to be operated.
Besides the demofilms the following pictures give also an overview of the ENA/EpiInfo software.
