Incorporating women enumerators in phone surveys
To understand gendered impacts of COVID-19 in food security and household decision-making, it is important to train women enumerators in phone call surveys. This innovation – developed by CGIAR and Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) – was utilized in Gujarat, India, where enumerators familiar with the workings of the organization helped build rapport with the respondents. As enumerators were familiar with SEWA livelihoods and local procedures, they were also able to provide valuable insights that improved the articulation of survey questions.
