The Pilot Census is almost here!

All census tools will be pre-tested before finalization for the enumeration. The most important pre-test is the Pilot Census which will take place in April. This will involve testing the whole census process, including, among other things, census field logistics, questionnaire, data processing and tabulation.

The pilot census will be used to test all the census procedures from advocacy and publicity to dissemination of results. It will also be used to assess the census logistics. The plan is to do a subset of enumeration areas (EAs) which will encompass the sort of situation that will exist during the main enumeration. Each of the twenty five states will be allocated EAs purposively. All the census instruments will be tested as well.
