VCQI Results Interpretation Quick-Reference Guide
This document is intended to guide interpretation of results in tables generated by the World Health Organization (WHO) software package named Vaccination Coverage Quality Indicators (VCQI)1. Other helpful VCQI resources include two documents named the VCQI User’s Guide and the Forms & Variable Lists (FVL) Structured for Compatibility with VCQI. Broadly speaking, VCQI generates three types of tables: 1. Survey-weighted estimated proportions, where the denominator is the sum of weights for all respondents and the numerator is the sum of weights of the respondents with the characteristic of interest 2. Unweighted sample proportions, where the denominator is a count of a subset of respondents and the numerator is a count of a subset of the denominator 3. Several miscellaneous tables that do not fit the description of 1 or 2 This document is organized by VCQI indicator and it provides sample sentences that you may use to describe the meaning of entries in VCQI tables. It will often be helpful for you to also read VCQI table footnotes carefully, and mention material found there when it is relevant for interpretation.
