Information Collection Files

Each indicator file is accompanied by a file that orients data collection. In the case of quantitative indicators, a possible way to treat the data is given in order to calculate the figures that have to be entered in the indicator formula. A space is set aside in which to mention points to be considered when interpreting the data from each indicator. 

This is a schematic proposal or guideline for the collection and classification of information and facilitates the calculation of the indicator evaluated. Each information collection file contains: 

  • An explanatory table for information collection.
  • Space for the indicator’s final data:
    • In the case of quantitative indicators, a formula is presented for the calculation of the final data.
    • In the case of qualititative indicators, a grading scale is shown that refers to the situations presented in the indicator file.
  • Space to make notes regarding the result obtained.
