Urgent Statistical Assistance Needed: Forward Request Widely

A coalition of NGOs [1] addressing the violation of economic and social rights in Haiti seeks immediate assistance from individuals with statistical backgrounds. The results will be presented in a hearing at the Inter-American Commission on March 23.

We currently have a team working on various coding and data entry tasks. We seek help from 2 to 3 additional individuals who can perform data analysis in SPSS, SAS, STATA, R or other statistical programs. The data is currently in Excel spreadsheets and describes living conditions in several displaced persons camps in Port-au-Prince. The deadline for completing analysis is March 19.

To volunteer, please contact Sarah Dougherty at Please state your available time between now and March 23 and your related data analysis qualifications or experience. She will be in touch with specifics. Thank you very much.

[1] The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, Partners In Health, the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU School of Law, the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux, and Zanmi Lasante.
