We’ve been setting up DHIS-2 as a health data warehouse and dashboard for Rwanda. So far it has gone well, but I have found no useful documentation about how to manage admin unit target populations … crucial for any coverage indicator calculations.
Ideally we’d like to store the populations once per org unit – for example at the year of the national census – and then have a table of parameters such as population growth rate, and breakdowns of % population in each of the major programmatic target groups (e.g. 4.1% expected pregnancies & children <1, 23.6% women of reproductive age, etc…) that can be pulled into indicator calculations. I’ve tried to create these parameters as data elements, but I can’t seem to use them successfully in the indicator definition screens, nor do I have any idea where the population data should be stored.
Has anyone done this before?
