From March 1 to March 31 of this year, the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Statistics organized training sessions on preliminary preparation for conducting multi-indicator cluster surveys. The training was attended by selected supervisors and interviewers from the Republic of Karakalpakstan, the city of Tashkent and regions.
The training took place in two stages. At the first stage, the participants were given the concepts of multi-indicator cluster surveys, the structure of the questionnaires, the content and essence of the questions. In the questionnaires, knowledge and skills were given on the correct, understandable transmission of questions to respondents, and the conduct of surveys.
At the second stage, trial surveys were carried out in the selected makhallas of the Yunusabad district of the capital, Zangiotinsky and Yangiyul districts of the Tashkent region. Plates were used in trial surveys.
It should be noted that on July 24, 2019, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a resolution “On conducting multi-indicator cluster surveys in the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2020-2021”. Based on this decree, the government, with the support of UNICEF, is carrying out various measures to conduct monitoring in the country to generate important statistics on the lifestyle of mothers and children.
For information: starting from April 5 of this year, the survey process will be collected electronically on tablets in 14,520 households located in 726 selected makhallas in the Republic of Uzbekistan, through personal conversations with respondents in the field.
As a result of the training, about 100 supervisors and interviewers selected from the Republic of Karakalpakstan, the city of Tashkent and regions were awarded special certificates from the State Statistics Committee and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
