RPHC4 Final Report: Data Quality Assessment

The work presented in this report represents an independent quality review conducted in parallel with the thematic analysis of the Fourth Rwanda Population and Housing Census (RPHC4). It covers the work done prior, during, and after enumeration to maximise the data quality.

The assessment confirms the strong planning and quality assurance throughout the enumeration to maximise representation of the population; but also finds potentially weaker direct quality assurance during the data processing phase.

The overall conclusion of the assessment is that the RPHC4 was implemented with strong quality control and gives an excellent representation of the population of Rwanda with generally good measurement of its structure both in terms of spread and demographic and socio-economic characteristics.
