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 update interviewers with a complete description of their roles and responsibilities. The manual is to be used as a training and reference guide during a census update interviewer’s course of work within his or her assignment area. The manual provides guidelines for canvassing an assignment area, reading and updating an assignment area map, reading and revising a pre-printed address listing book, and completing the SAVVY census update questionnaire and the SAVVY census change questionnaire. The manual also provides guidelines on interview instructions and how to deal with unusual or difficult situations.
