As you may have already read, this year we’re revamping the survey with a whole new methodology that will give us a better perception of data quality and availability. Along with the new survey we’re also redesigning the whole software; we’re making it more user friendly and taking into account the feedback we’ve got from the community during the past couple of years.
We are merging the Index and Census templates, implementing all the UI changes, and will keep you posted as we get closer to launch. Since these are significant changes, we’ve decided to pause the translations, or modifications in the survey until we launch the new version. Any changes made during these months will not be comparable with the new survey, so we will recommend that you wait until we have the now tool set for use.
In the meantime if you decide to use the Census, we recommend to either fork the tool or make sure all the data you capture is used in the next couple of months, so you don’t lose any of these valuable inputs.
