Kind of Data
Census/enumeration data [cen]
Unit of Analysis
Financial institutions, agricultural input providers, churches, and religious organisations in all parts of Zambia except Ikelenge district.
Health care facilities, financial institutions, educational institutions, agricultural service providers in Ikelenge district.
v1.0: Edited, edited anonymous dataset for public distribution
This is the first publicly available version of this dataset.
The project aimed to capture all open and operational touch-points at the time of fieldwork. Active points were considered to have done a transaction in the last 90 days. Not all points are captured due to several factors including:
i) non-location of the points
ii) security areas
iii) resistance or lack of cooperation
v) safety of fieldwork staff

Data Collection Notes
The Ikelenge district was captured for the first time some months after the other districts in round 2 and not at all in round 1. This was due to accessibility issues. The Ikelenge questionnaire lacked some of the detail of the others, only containing information on the geolocation, category and subcategory of the mapped outlet.
Round 2 of the MSMP was captured from a single questionnaire, which is a change on the structure initially implemented in Round 1.
