Surveys is a spreadsheet application developed by HNTS for user-friendly data entry and automatic analysis of nutrition and mortality surveys, and quality scoring.
The objective of the quality checking is to assess the quality of nutrition and mortality surveys through the use of an algorithm, in order to make optimal use of data available when combining information from different sources but taking into account their relative plausibility.
The algorithm is made of objective criteria based on internationally agreed methodologies and best practices for analysing nutrition and mortality survey reports, thus allowing a relatively junior data analyst to carry out a reliable review.

Epi Info/ Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA) Software
The purpose of Epi Info/ ENA software is to make analysis of nutrition and mortality data collected in field surveys as easy and reliable as possible. By combining Epi Info and ENA for SMART, one software package was created that allows to generate anthropometric scores using both WHO and NCHS growth standards, produce automated analyses of key mortality and nutrition indicators, conduct automated plausibility and data quality checks, and generate reports that include results of these automated analyses.
Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA) for SMART
Software developed as part of the SMART initiative to analyse nutrition and mortality surveys. It provides standard analysis of nutrition and mortality surveys in emergency situations and contains therefore all necessary calculations in one programme. The software has different sheets (planning, training, data entry, results, options) which follows the steps of a survey.
WHO Anthro Software
WHO Anthro 2005 software consists of three modules: 1) Anthropometric calculator; 2) Individual assessment; 3) Nutritional survey (cross-sectional). Also includes macro for SAS, S-Plus, SPSS and STATA.
Probability calculators for decision-making (CDC)
Field practitioners in humanitarian settings often face challenges analyzing and interpreting the results of nutrition surveys. Two calculators are available. The first one is a “threshold” probability calculator that provides the estimated probability of the true population prevalence exceeding the threshold. The second one is a “two-survey” calculator for testing the statistical significance of the difference between the estimates from 2 surveys (or from 2 strata of the same survey).
