Assessments and Surveys

During this quarter, data cleaning and validation continued for the Village Assessment Surveys (VAS) conducted in Aweil Center, Magwi, Torit and Malakal counties. A total of 97 interviews were conducted at the boma level. Infrastructure mapping data was collected for around 1,600 facilities, such as water points, administrative buildings, schools, health facilities, religious buildings, markets and transport centers. Sectoral technical questionnaires collected data from more than 400 educational and health institutions. A total of 45 enumerators, including 16 female enumerators, participated in this exercise.

The report and public dataset for Wau, Rubkona and Bor South counties were released during the reporting period.
During the reporting period, the DTM also started to develop updated enumeration areas for major urban centers in South Sudan. The enumeration areas will allow representative sampling of the urban population for a cross-sectional study of the prevalence of COVID-19 and a multisectoral survey on household needs and vulnerability, planned jointly with WFP and WHO. The methodology, which builds on DTM’s previous experience in Haiti, combines the analysis of high-resolution satellite images and field assessments by local investigators. Data collection has been completed in Juba and preparations have started to expand the activity to other urban centers.
