National Surveys

The National Surveys methodology is a credible and globally accepted process of collecting and analysing financial inclusion data. National Surveys methodology uses a sampling procedure that ensures minimum acceptable levels for national, urban/rural and regional reliable estimates with acceptable margins of error. A multi-stage sampling methodology is applied, which entails selection of enumeration areas (EAs) – from recent census or population estimates using probability proportional to size, followed by the selection of households and the selection of one adult in the selected household using a Kish Grid.
