This baseline survey that was conducted in Tanzania between September and November 2018 has built on the two successive trial surveys (pilots) conducted in 2016/17 and in early 2018. The main objective of this survey was to assess and produce information regarding the situation and perceptions from individual adults on land rights and tenure security issues in Tanzania. Apart from reporting on kind of property ownership, individuals were also asked on their perceptions regarding tenure security of their property.
A national representative sample of adults aged 18 years and above from private households in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar were interviewed about tenure, security and kind of documentation of properties they live in or use and that found elsewhere away from their current homes.
The survey covered both urban and rural areas. Such kind of a survey has also been conducted in 32 other countries as of 2018. These include nine countries from Southern and Eastern Africa, others were from Central and western Africa, Middle East and Northern Africa, Latin America, South-East Asia and the United Kingdom.
The report was officially launched by the Hon. Deputy Minister for Lands, Housing and Human Settlement Development at the NBS headquarters in Dodoma on the 3rd May,2019.
