Summary 

The Armenia Demographic and Health Survey 2015-2016 is part of phase 7 of the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) series, a nationally representative household survey series. Topics commonly covered in DHS include: child and maternal health, family planning, nutrition, health behavior and knowledge, health care access and use, and immunization. For the 2015-2016 Armenia DHS, 6,116 women and 2,755 men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 7,893 households. Finger/heel prick blood samples were drawn to test for anemia in children ages 6-59 months and women ages 15-49 who consented to testing. Anthropometric measurements were taken for children ages 0-69 months. In addition to the Women's, Men's, and Biomarker questionnaires, a Field Worker questionnaire was also administered.
