The Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZIMSTAT) will be conducting the Post Census Enumeration Survey (PES) to provide information on the magnitude of census coverage and content errors from the 22nd – 27th of July 2022.

What is a Post Enumeration Survey?

a) The post-enumeration survey (PES) can be defined as the complete re-enumeration of a representative sample of the census population and matching each individual who is enumerated in the post-enumeration survey with information from the main census of April 2022.

b) The survey is carried out immediately after the census to evaluate the results of a census and used to estimate the level of under or over count (people missed or double counted) in the census and also to estimate the true population when necessary.

c) PES can be used to verify the accuracy of responses for some key census questions (Content Error).

A sample size large enough to measure coverage will be used in this case 130 Enumeration Areas in the different districts as shown in the table below:
