Survey Dry Run at Fataldao, Brgy San Jose, General Santos City
This is the second day of the PDMS Survey training. We went to Purok Fataldao in Brgy San Jose to interview homepartners.
This time is different from the previous survey projects we have conducted. Instead of the field interviewers going house to house, the homepartners were all gathered at the local chapel. After their regular meeting with DSWD, the interview started right were they sat.
I just have a feeling that we are starting the project right. We have 10 interviewers and 5 supervisors to monitor them. At the moment a supervisor sees doubtful data, the questionnaire is given back right away to the interviewer and clarify the data.
A new customization is need to the PDMS software as we must accomodate cultural aspect of the survey. We need to think about a strategy in the software to link separate households who have one father, as is common to muslim culture they call "duaya".
This is a day of hardwork for everybody.
