IFS researcher delivers skills training on revenue data management and analysis with civil servants from Ethiopia

India Keable-Elliott from the IFS's TAXDEV recently delivered remote training on data management and analysis to partners at the Ethiopian Ministry of Finance and Economic Cooperation (MoFEC). The objectives of the training were to support our partners to further develop their familiarity with MS Excel and STATA, and to apply these statistical software skills to analyse revenue data from different tax bases over time. This builds on previous STATA training sessions delivered by IFS researchers in Addis Ababa in January 2017, and are part of TAXDEV’s broader programme of skills development and training in Ethiopia, which provides support to civil servants to enable them to conduct high-quality and independent analysis and modelling of the impacts of tax policy.
