OPAL use case with ANSD Senegal Announcement

Conscious of the need to improve the availability of data for monitoring indicators, the National Agency for Statistics and Demography (Agence Nationale de la Statistique et de la Démographie - ANSD) is interested in the use of new data sources for the production and monitoring of data. As a promising source, mobile data is a viable alternative to traditional sources such as the national census. As part of the OPAL project pilot, ANSD is interested in estimating the population density of Senegal at the communal level through analysis of SONATEL Call Data Records (CDRs).
