Household welfare monitoring statistics help monitor and mitigate the socio-economic impacts of any crisis in the country. The statistics are essential to inform policy formulation, implementation, and evaluation processes. Responding to this information need, the Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZIMSTAT), with technical and financial support from World Bank and UNICEF, designed a high-frequency telephone survey of households to measure the socio-economic impact of any crisis in Zimbabwe.
The survey, referred to as the Rapid PICES Household Welfare Monitoring Telephone Survey, is based on Poverty, Income, Consumption and Expenditure Surveys (PICES) of 2017 and 2019. The initial PICES survey in 2017 covered 32,000 households, from which a sample of 3,000 households was drawn for the 2019 Mini PICES Survey. From the 2,201 responding households, a sample of 1,800 households that provided contact details was drawn for the Rapid PICES Welfare Monitoring Telephone Survey. Nine rounds of this survey were completed between July 2020 and January 2023 , with the sample representative at both urban and rural areas.
The report summarizes the results of the ninth round of Rapid PICES, conducted from December 2022 to January, 2023, and compares them to the findings of the eighth round. Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) was used for data collection.
