The Performance, Monitoring, and Accountability Survey (PMA2020) was a multinational, five-year initiative to monitor key indicators for water, sanitation, and family planning. The project was implemented by local research organizations in ten countries using female enumerators and smartphone-based software. There were generally two rounds of data collection each year during the first two years of PMA2020. The survey was conducted annually in following years.

The data were collected through questionnaires for households, women ages 15-49, and service delivery points (SDPs). The major topics covered in the household and women's questionnaire included household characteristics, assets, sanitation, fertility, and contraceptive use. The SDP questionnaires focused on facility type, location, staffing, and size based on the number of beds.

The sample size for this survey was 4,100 households, 4,154 women, and 179 SDPs.
