IPPF Data Quality Assessment (RDQA) Tool

Author:International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), MEASURE Evaluation
Description:Adapted from the Routine Data Quality Assessment (RDQA) Tool to improve data quality and uniformity in the reporting of indicators, and to improve data quality among the IPPF member associations (responsible for reporting to the IPPF central office). The IPPF RDQA Tool is flexible and useful in identifying weaknesses in data quality flow. This tool is meant to rapidly verify the quality of reported data for selected indicators, facilitate development of an action plan, and then monitor capacity improvement and performance of the data management and reporting system to produce data quality over time.
