Sample Vital Registration with Verbal Autopsy (SAVVY) is a library of best practice methods for improving the quality of vital statistics where high coverage of civil registration and/or good cause of death data are not available. This manual is intended to provide census interviewers with a complete description of their roles and responsibilities. The manual is to be used as a training and reference guide during census interviewers’ work within their assignment area. The manual provides guidelines for canvassing assignment areas, reading and updating the assignment area map, completing the address listing book, and completing the SAVVY census questionnaire. The manual also provides guidelines on interview instructions, unusual or difficult situations, and how to turn in completed work to a supervisor.
