Summary 

The 2013 Sierra Leone Demographic and Health Survey (SLDHS) is a nationally representative sample for which 12,629 households, 16,658 women ages 15-49, and 7,262 men ages 15-59 were successfully interviewed. This sample provided estimates for Sierra Leone as a whole, for urban and rural areas, and for most indicators, estimates for the four regions and the fourteen administrative districts.

The survey provides current data on fertility trends, family planning, maternal and child health, childhood mortality, nutrition and child feeding practices, adult and maternal mortality, female genital cutting, HIV/AIDS-related knowledge and behavior, and other health issues.
