In addition, technical challenges and implementation challenges involved in sub-county data analyses are discussed. Lessons learned and proposed recommendations for prospective analysts of sub-county data are provided on the basis of project experiences, successes, and challenges.
The teams encourage future projects to further refine techniques for addressing these critical considerations.
