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 supervisor coordinators with a complete description of their roles and responsibilities. The manual is to be used as a reference guide during a census supervisor coordinator’s course of work with his or her assigned field office. The manual combines descriptions of the major duties of the census supervisor coordinator during the baseline census and the census update rounds. The manual provides guidelines on the field observation of census supervisors in order to determine if interviewers are being properly trained and monitored during the interview period; provides tools for helping the census supervisor maintain his or her schedule under unusual or difficult circumstances; provides instructions on actions to take if there is a suspicion of falsification of data; and provides guidance about communication between the census supervisor coordinator and census supervisors.
