This chapter deals exclusively with the practicalities of how to manage data to increase and maintain reliability and accuracy. It focuses primarily on setting up the printed or computerized interview; structuring it to minimize human error; and maximizing movement to a clean, usable, archivable dataset. It covers the continuum of data management, starting with adapting instruments. It presents a budget analysis guide for choosing to use paper or computerized interviews. Examples of correct and incorrect formatting are illustrated. The chapter closes with a discussion of data entry, setting up datasets for longitudinal studies, and data archiving.
