The objective of this project is to collect high-resolution and high-frequency data on intra-city movements of a randomly selected group of individuals that will be interviewed as part of a planned household survey in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The project will combine detailed socio-economic information solicited on individuals and households as part the 3,000 household Measuring Living Standards within Dar es Salaam Survey (MLDS) with (i) follow-up phone interviews and (ii) sensor-embedded smartphone based high-frequency data collection on time- and GPS-stamped intra-city movements of a randomly selected sub-sample of MLDS respondents.
