Training of Enumerators for the Juba  Victimization Survey

From November 17 to November 20, 2014 a TDRP team in collaboration with the South Sudan National Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Commission (NDDRC) conducted a rigorous enumerators' training to conduct the tablet-based Juba Victimization Survey in Juba, South Sudan. The Juba Victimization Survey Report's objective is to explore levels and understand the dynamics of crime, fear of crime, crime prevention, and victimization in Juba in order to better support NDDRC in preparing young ex-combatants' reintegration into productive civilian lives that is free from crime and violence, either as perpetrators or as victims.

The team of 16 enumerators comprised of caseworkers from NDDRC and social workers from the Central Equatoria State Department of Social Development and Gender. The TDRP team trained the enumerators on undertaking tablet based surveys, survey techniques, interviewer skills, and the research methodology. Further, the enumerators received additional training on administering the Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) sections of the survey questionnaire. A lead social worker from the Sexual and Gender Based Violence unit of the Ministry of Social Development and Gender led a training session on the SGBV referral pathway employed by the Ministry in Central Equatoria State.

While the caseworkers from NDDRC had conducted tablet based surveys before, the social workers from the Ministry were new to tablet based surveys. Plenty of time was allotted so that the social workers from the Ministry could familiarize themselves with the tablets and practice. They received valuable training and mentorship from their peers from NDDRC as well and were able to develop a rapport with them throughout the duration of the training. By the end of the training, all enumerators were very excited to use tablets to administer the survey as opposed to a paper survey.

Between 22 November and 25 November, the team initiated the survey in seven of the 33 EAs sampled in the payam of Juba Town in order to validate the survey's smooth operation on the tablets. The TDRP team confirmed that all enumerators administered the survey with no technical issues. The enumerators will continue with the survey in the selected EAs in Juba Town, Kator, and Munuki for a period of four weeks.

The Juba Victimization Survey Report is expected to be finalized by February 2014.
