Good morning.

Is there a software package similar to Epi Info for Mac? Alternatively, what software is recommended for organising maternal anthropometric data collected on a monthly basis (as part of a longitudinal research project)?

thank you!

You can run the old DOS EpiInfo using DOSBox. It works well but that version of EpiInfo one does the older NCHS anthropometric references.

ENA for SMART will run under Wine (I have used Wind Bottler). See this thread. EpiData will also rune under Wine.

Statistical data-entry packages are not common on the Mac. You might be able to run the [url=http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/spss-data-entry]SPSS Data Collection / Data Entry Module[/ur] for date-entry.

You can use traditional database software. A number are available ranging from simple flat files to fully relational systems. May will allow data-entry on the iPad. Spreadsheet software can also be used but you need to check hard for data-entry errors.

For data-analysis you can use packages like SPSS (or the free clone PSSP for simpler analyses) or STATA. I use R - a steep learning curve (I have a course you can follow ... there are a number of web-bases courses) - and RAnalyticalFlow.

I hope this is of some use.
