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 supervisors with a complete description of their roles and responsibilities. The manual is to be used as a training and reference guide during a census supervisor’s course of work within his or her supervisory area. The manual combines descriptions of supervisory work during the baseline and the update rounds of the census. It provides guidelines for supervising interviewers when they are canvassing assignment areas, reading and updating AA maps, completing address listing books, and completing SAVVY census questionnaires.
