The purpose of the survey, conducted in March and April of 2009, was to update the micronutrient indicators in planning and implementing food fortification interventions. 3,300 households were selected for the sample size which were expected to have information for approximately 800 children ages 6 to 59 months and 1,020 women ages 15 to 49.
