Transmission Assessment Survey Sample Builder

13 January 2018

The Survey Sample Builder is a tool designed to help program managers with their Transmission Assessment Surveys. The SSB program can be used to automate the calculations for determining appropriate survey strategy. The design of the surveys is flexible in order to best fit the local situation and depends upon factors such as the primary school enrolment rate, the population size, the number of schools or enumeration areas, and the cost of different survey methods. NTD Support Center at The Task Force for Global Health, 2018.

This tool is available for download in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Please note: The SSB tool is a macro-enabled Excel file that can run on any version of Microsoft Excel, as long as the user selects “enable macros” upon opening the file.
