Following existing guidance notes for remote technical assistance for surveys
During the COVID-19 pandemic, surveyors faced barriers in data collection, as they were unable to interview households in person. To address these barriers, the World Bank Data Task Force on COVID-19 and Household Survey worked to have Technical Assistance (TA) teams provide remote assistance to NSOs so that they could adequately support survey operations in client countries with minimal disruptions to the data collection efforts. The task force supported survey operations virtually by focusing on survey design and planning, team organization, and implementation. While gender is not a specific focus, household surveys nonetheless collect information on household members’ sex.
