NGILIMANA Gad*, Dr. Mukuru Sessazi Alfred and Rwabukumba Kizihira Valantin

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to assess the correlation between information system usage and land Management within Department of Land Titles and Mapping Office of the Registrar General, in Nyanza District, Rwanda with the following objectives; to examine how land management is carried out, in Nyanza District; Rwanda, to determine how an information system is used in Nyanza District; Rwanda and to determine how information system usage affects Land management, in Nyanza District, Rwanda. Descriptive case study research design was used. The target population for the study was 200 employees including staff, GIS officers and data entry personnel of land titling and mapping registrar general within Nyanza, southern, Rwanda. A sample size of 132 was calculated using Slovin’s formula. Interview guide and questionnaires were used to collect data. Pilot study was done at Huye District within the land administration officer with a target population of 6. Quantitative analysis method has been used including frequencies, percentages, weighted means, standard deviation, and multiple regressions to describe the relationships between variables. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 16.0 was used as a tool for quantitative analysis while interview guides and open-ended questions have been analyzed qualitatively using content analysis. The resulting indicators were presented in tables. Findings revealed that the information system is used at a high level where the grand mean value of 1.84 shows that the respondents agreed on the usage of the Information system; internet connection was strongly confirmed by the land administration office staffs via the content analysis. The finding also showed that the connectivity of GIS and GPS, as well as LAIS in general, was good; this was strongly confirmed by the land administration staffs through the content analysis. The performances of other functionalities were established, tasks done by staffs and data entry personnel using IS were measured where findings showed that not all of the respondents were together on the respective issues concerned. Additionally, findings revealed r =0.82 multiple correlation coefficients which shows that there was a very strong positive correlation between independent variables (Information system) and the dependent variable (land management). The findings were also emphasized by R-squared equal to 66%, this reveals that the applied information system have effect on land management whereas the remaining total variation of 34. % was due to unexplained factors. Recommendations were to strengthen the policy of information dissemination in order to assess quickly information on land management. This process should be processed via the website to facilitate people to assess information related to land using a mobile telephone.
