Abstract:Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) are nationally representative household surveys with large sample sizes of about 5,000 households. DHS surveys provide data for a wide range of monitoring and impact evaluation indicators in the areas of population, health, and nutrition.

The core questionnaire for MEASURE DHS+ emphasizes basic indicators and flexibility. Its compact size allows for the addition of special modules so that questionnaires can be tailored to meet host-country and USAID data needs. The standard DHS survey consists of a household questionnaire and a women's questionnaire. The women's questionnaire contains information on the following topics: Background characteristics, Lifetime reproduction, Contraceptive knowledge and use, Maternity and breastfeeding, Immunization of children, Diarrhea, fever, and cough in children, Height and weight of children, Marriage, Fertility preferences, Husband's background, Woman's work status.

Additional modules include: Consanguinity, Domestic violence, Female genital cutting, Health expenditures, HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Maternal mortality, Pill failure and behavior, Social marketing, Sterilization experience, Verbal autopsy, Women's status.
