Community Rapid Assessment (CRA) on COVID-19
In an effort to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the Evaluation Office conceptualized a remote data collection using high frequency mobile telephony data to survey populations and examine trust and behavior changes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The short modules also examined how households coped during the pandemic, as well as tracked their emerging needs and as the pandemic evolves. The sampling frames applies weight models to provide more reliable and representative data and was able to disaggregate the data by sex, age, urban/rural setting, and education. The primary objective of this work is to provide rapid, community-sourced data in real-time in order to strengthen the evidence base and inform country-level programming in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
