SURINFO/SurinameCensusInfo and SurinameEnvironmentInfo

Purpose of the DevInfo database:
DevInfo is short for Development Information; this database is the result of a collaborative effort by UNICEF and the UN. From 2019, there has been a transition from DevInfo to the Dataforall platform.
Unlike the well-known SPSS, Excel and CSPro, this system is not a data processing tool, nor does it serve as a replacement for these programmes. Its function is rather to give presentations using tables, graphs and maps.
In the above databases, data is stored in a structured manner and presented on line.

The different versions of DevInfo are:

  • Childinfo 3.5 (1995-2003), UNICEF
  • DevInfo 4.0 (2004)
  • DevInfo 5.0 (2006)
  • DevInfo 6.0 (2008)
  • DevInfo 7.0 (2012-2018)
  • Dataforall (2019-…..)
