The project develops software solutions for an efficient and error-minimizing workflow in the survey life cycle. The comprehensive implementation of structured metadata realizes the process error reduction. The software from the project is freely available and, therefore, adjustable to individual requirements. includes: SurveyAMC, ClickAMC, Datatblr and Mendel.

    The SurveyAMC package is targeted to create machine-readable questionnaires for self-administered paper surveys in high typesetting quality. The package provides a LaTeX style for designing the questionnaire’s general layout, as well as for formatting and placing the questions, the answers, the answer boxes, the completion and filter instructions. After the completion of the survey, the respondents’ answers can be automatically processed into a fully structured file using the freely available software Auto-Multiple-Choice (Version 1.4.0).

    ClickAMC helps you get started with your own paper based survey project. ClickAMC generates the machine-readable LaTeX questionnaire, the codebook, and the Stata Do-File for labeling the answer dataset from one source file. All you need to do is to upload a CVS file that contains the metadata of the questionnaire.

    Datatblr generates a table volume containing the univariate description of all metric and categorical variables of a data set. Datatblr delivers the table volume as TEX and PDF file. Datatblr is suitable for generating table volumes that typically appear in the appendix of research reports, or for the preparation of more detailed analysis.
