These designs helped to generate information on Poverty and Child Mortality in Kanungu district. The designs employed the use of questionnaires and in-depth interviews which are to be conducted between the different types of respondents. The study was conducted in Kambuga Town Council. A sample size of 80 respondents was determined through purposive and random sampling methods.
