Nafundi and Task Force release codebook generator for ODK

The Task Force for Global Health does a lot of data collection and reporting all over the world. As part of their work, they provide their users with a dataset and a codebook that explains the data. Generating a codebook can be tedious work, so Task Force hired Nafundi to automate the process.

Our team has created Codebook, an open-source tool that generates a PDF codebook. Codebook is perfect for users who download datasets and need to understand what individual variables mean. Like many of our tools, it builds on Open Data Kit, is easy to use, and produces beautiful results.
