Chinese Development in Africa: Final Post

So, this is the end, but not really, since I plan to continue throughout this semester. However, I’ll go ahead and wrap this up with some reflections and what I learned. I am happy to say that this research has taught me a lot about Stata, ArcGIS, and troubleshooting data organization issues. Therefore, future projects that require similar skills will go much more smoothly in the future. I also learned a lot about the scope of project that one can reasonably complete in a given period of time. in the future I will better know how much time commitment to expect. I also learned a lot about how China does development and how surveys like the DHS are operated In the preparation stage of this project. While I wish had more to say in the way of results, I have nothing conclusive to report. I will, however, continue as best I can to further what I have started.
