Enumerators in Payinjiar finalize Human Security Survey data collection
– GANYLIEL – Data collection for the Human Security Survey in Payinjiar county has been finalized by the end of May. Ten enumerators have jointly collected over 400 surveys on the communities’ perceptions of their local security situation.
The surveys were collected in a three-week period following the training of the enumerators at the end of April. Immediately after the finalization of the training, enumerators returned to their home areas to start data collection here for the Human Security Survey 2018. This is the second data collection phase in Payinjiar after the first round of surveys were collected in April 2017.
The surveys will now be analyzed in the next coming months by PAX. By the end of this year, we hope to return to Payinjiar to report the main findings of the surveys with local community representatives, local authorities and law enforcement agencies, and discuss the progress of the local security situation since last year.
Last month, Payinjiar (which is located in the south of former Unity State) also staged a peace meeting with representatives from the wider Yirol area (Eastern Lakes State) and Amongpiny (Western Lakes State) to agree on a local peace process in order to improve inter-communal relations between the neighboring communities and address current insecurity and violent incidents between them.
