We will not use the usual questionnaires but tablets that have the software called Survey 1,2,3 which was procured from Israel, the enumerators will collect data on key infrastructure, government projects, mobile towers and commercial buildings among others,” he said.

Mr.Sinyenga underscored that the pilot project of land mapping was successfully implemented in Chongwe and Lusaka districts using the new technology of survey software, saying that the project will be rolled out to other parts of the country in the first quarter of 2019.

    • Mushota, they do not count people who are not in the Zambia. They don’t need any details from you, love! Keep you details in Scotland, this is not a world census .

    • Here we go. $50 million for a $200 software. Zambian can easily make a database. Most universities have Survey software, you just change titles like male, female, goats, brothel etc.
      Tables direct from manufacturer in China you install such AccessDatase can $100 each.
      Hyperinflationary Zambian.
