Using Mobile Phones in Data Collection

Mobile Phones in Data Collection

In the past, efforts to collect data from mobile devices have often faced a number of challenges, including costs, novelty, and difficulty in exchanging data. Today, there are numerous ways to use mobile phones for data collection, and the technology is relatively inexpensive and accessible to many people. Moreover, it meets the criteria of affordability, accessibility, and general knowledge. For example, a recent study by the World Health Organization (WHO) found that 98 percent of the global population owned a mobile phone, with rates of 96 percent in developed countries and 89% in developing nations.

Data collection can be a viable option

Using mobile phones for data collection can be a viable option for a variety of purposes, and the increasing number of people using mobile phones for communication means that cellular data collection has never been more affordable. While many people think that data collection from mobile phones requires expensive smartphones, this is not always the case. Low-cost dumbphones can be used for voice-to-text and simple text messaging. In some cases, researchers may also use the data collected with the help of smartphones in order to better understand the population.

Data Collection

While mobile phones are not as popular as laptop computers for data collection, they are a great option for gathering data from different sectors. The ease of setting up and collecting data from mobile phones is also an advantage. Furthermore, these devices are much cheaper than desktop computers and other traditional methods. As a result, researchers can easily set up the phone networks in a workshop while still completing their tasks. Therefore, researchers can use mobile phones for data collection in a number of ways.

Using Mobile Phones in Data Collection

Process is more convenient and easier

A major drawback to using mobile phones for data collection is the cost. The cost of mobile phone infrastructure is higher than that of desktop computers, but the process is more convenient and easier. A smartphone can be used for collecting big data, as long as it has a Wi-Fi connection. The data collected from the phone network can be easily analyzed in a statistical fashion with minimal investment. In addition to the cost, the convenience of using a smartphone for data collection is also a major benefit.

In addition to being cheaper than desktop computers, mobile phones are also easier to set up. It is possible to use a low-cost dumb phone for simple text messaging. Then, it would be better if the researchers have a low-cost mobile phone for data collection. This way, they can use the device for data collection. There are many advantages of using mobile phones in data collections. If you can set up the data collector’s phone, you can focus on the other aspects of the study.
