More than 15 years after initial creation, STATCompiler has reached a level of unparalleled excellency with the latest release. The newly designed Beta STATCompiler website now reflects the most up-to-date indicator data from The DHS Program in a platform accessible universally across devices.
There are several changes to STATCompiler that bring it in to a new era:
- New user interface and all new cartography for beautiful maps and visualizations
- Over 500 new indicators including data from the DHS-6 tabulation plan on topics such as domestic violence, female genital cutting, malaria and maternal mortality
- Metadata is now included in the “indicator details” with full definitions, denominators, and the measure of data (rate, percentage, etc.).
- Confidence Intervals are now included in the graphics, an especially important consideration for rare events, particularly HIV prevalence and maternal mortality.
- New data visualizations such as pop-ups in the map that summarizes trends over time
- Mobile friendly interface allows it to be accessed on tablet devices.
- The site now leverages the DHS Program’s public Application Programming Interface (API) ensuring data continuity and authenticity.
