The National Population Commission (NPC) has launched a mobile application called CensusPad to facilitate the training of enumerators and supervisors ahead of the 2023 census exercise in Nigeria. The app is available for download on the Google Play Store.
With CensusPad, NPC aims to improve the quality of data collection during the census exercise by providing comprehensive training to enumerators and supervisors. The app offers a user-friendly interface with interactive modules that cover various aspects of the census operation, including ethics, interviewing techniques, and data management.
The app also features audio-visual content, quiz questions, and feedback mechanisms to ensure that trainees understand the census procedures and protocols. Furthermore, CensusPad enables real-time monitoring and evaluation of the training process by NPC officials, allowing them to identify knowledge gaps and provide timely support to trainees.
The launch of CensusPad is a significant milestone for NPC, as it reflects the commission’s commitment to adopting innovative solutions to enhance the quality and accuracy of census data. With the app, NPC can train a large number of enumerators and supervisors at once, reducing the cost and time required for in-person training.
Overall, CensusPad is a testament to the power of technology to transform traditional processes and improve service delivery. As Nigeria prepares for the 2023 census, CensusPad is poised to play a critical role in ensuring that the exercise is conducted smoothly and produces reliable data that will guide policy decisions for years to come.
