ZIMSTAT Recruits Enumerators Before Paying Participants In First Phase

The Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZIMSTAT) has commenced its 2022 Population and Housing Census post-Enumeration Survey (PES) training of enumerators despite not having paid enumerators who participated in the main 2022 census.

Officially launching the PES training of enumerators exercise last weekend, ZIMSTAT director general, Taguma Mahonde said: 

Remember that the government has entrusted us with the mandate to collect and supply high quality and usable data. Therefore, for the next four days we are expected to focus on the training exercise in preparation for PES data collection.

Finally, distinguished participants, allow me to express my sincere gratitude to the Government of Zimbabwe and development partners for the financial and technical support rendered to ZIMSTAT to undertake this survey.

A PES is carried out immediately after a population census in order to establish the magnitude of census coverage and content errors.

The 2022 PES will collect information on persons who were enumerated and those not enumerated during the 2022 Population and Housing Census (PHC) and if executed diligently and efficiently.

NewZimbabwe.com reports that the exercise comes when thousands of enumerators who participated in the first exercise, which ended three months ago, are yet to be paid.

Some enumerators told Pindula News in May that they had only been given caps and t-shirts.
