The National Statistics Office of Georgia (GEOSTAT) has commenced Real Time Monitoring survey of the impact of COVID-19 on the welfare of families and children; the survey is implemented with technical and financial support from UNICEF, based on the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS6) sample.
The survey approach is based on the collection of information from the same respondents repeatedly on a frequent basis over a year (panel survey).
As part of the survey, data will be collected from urban as well as rural households. The sample size for the entire country is set at 2,118 households, among them 996 households in urban areas, and 1,122 households in rural areas. Data collection is performed via tablets, by using a computer-assisted telephone interviewing method (CATI).
First wave field works of the survey were conducted in November-December 2020. Response rate was 86.7 per cent, among them 89.0 per cent in urban settlements, and 84.7 per cent in rural settlements.
