Zimstat has embarked on a post-enumeration survey in 85 selected wards countrywide, in a process that replicates actual enumeration, in a bid to measure the accuracy of the recent population census.

The week-long exercise began on Tuesday with Zimstat director-general Mutasa Dzinotizei appealing for maximum co-operation from the public.
“A post-enumeration survey is basically an independent survey that replicates a census,” he said.
“It is usually held soon after census enumeration in order to evaluate the results of a census.
“A post-enumeration survey thus provides an opportunity to measure the extent to which people were correctly enumerated and a platform to learn how to improve future censuses and surveys.”
