Title: Demonstration of Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro)
By: Ms. Munkhzul Zookhuu (Zula) – M.A. International Student

      I have shared some information on the capabilities and features of the Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) on Jul 29, 2009 (last Wednesday seminar).

      CSPro is a public-domain software package that is especially designed for entering, checking, editing, tabulating, and mapping census and survey data. Either small or large data from censuses and surveys in any subject areas can be processed by using CSPro. It allows a user to create data dictionaries that contain common descriptions of data files, which are ASCII format, and data entry forms (just same as questionnaire forms) for data capture. And a user will be able to develop applications that examine consistency checks, skips, structural defects, or other errors of data files. Also, CSPro has capabilities of manipulating data files, creating an application to produce frequency distributions or cross-tabulations, or creating thematic maps that can be used for data distribution.

      Considering very interests in how CSPro exactly works of some participants in the last Wednesday seminar, a demonstration on Cspro will be held for the audience who are interested in. Hope you will join us.

Title: Rethinking "Forest Malaria": A Consideration from Malaria Control Project in Myanmar
By: Dr. Chihiro Shirakawa, Visiting scholar, IPSR/ Associate Professor, National Museum of Ethnology, Osaka, Japan

      Malaria in the South-east Asian continent has long been described as "forest malaria", since main vector mosquitoes of this area, Anopheles minimus and A. dirus, breed mainly in clear running waters in forests and their fringe areas. However, it appears that this description needs to have a careful examination. Since 2004, I am engaging in a malaria control project organized and implemented by the Ministry of Health, Myanmar, and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as JICA short term expert. Based on this experience, the presentation aims to point out that the malaria situation in the project site of Myanmar should not be understood simply as "forest malaria".
