Part of phase 6 of the DHS series, a comprehensive, nationally representative household survey. Covers population, education, health, nutrition, family planning and household characteristics.

Interviews were completed with 9,033 households, 8,674 women and 2,295 men. The Uganda 2011 DHS also included testing for anemia and vitamin A.
