Measuring Child Protection Outcomes in Senegal: A population-based survey in Kolda and Pikine Departments
This report presents the results of a population-based survey on child protection and well-being carried out between April and August 2016 in two departments of Senegal: Kolda and Pikine. The objective of this research was to develop and pilot a rigorous, population-based survey to monitor the performance and effectiveness of the child protection system at a decentralized level. The results of this survey represent the baseline value of a wide range of child protection issues in the two surveyed departments. In addition, the survey measured social norms underpinning a number of child protection issues such as female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C), child marriage, and corporal punishment. This report presents detailed descriptive statistics for the survey administered to the 833 adolescents across both districts. This report also presents detailed descriptive statistics for the survey administered to the 836 caregivers across both districts. Implementing the same survey on a regular basis will allow for the measurement of changes in prevalence and social norms in a statistically representative manner.
