United Nations Expert Group Meeting on Innovative Methods to Measure the Impact of Covid-19 on Mortality through Surveys and Censuses
TAGS

(Newsletter: CRVS Insight July 2022)

This hybrid meeting organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) will take place on 23-25 August 2022, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The meeting will discuss and agree on a set of proposed recommendations for censuses and surveys based on ongoing research and experiments, and particularly in low-income and middle-income countries. These recommendations will seek to (a) improve adult mortality data collection in terms of quality, availability and timeliness; and (b) generate census and survey data that could be used to measure the impact of epidemics, pandemics and other disasters on adult mortality. The proposed recommendations would cover innovations in questionnaire design; interview methods and sampling strategies, as well as integration of surveys and censuses with other data sources on mortality (e.g., civil registration, health information systems).
