The 2002 Zambia DHS EdData Survey (ZDES) provides information on education attainment, education expenditures, and education access for school children age 6-14. The 2002 ZDES participants were selected from a sub-sample of those surveyed in the 2001-2002 Zambia Demographic and Health Survey (DHS). Data from 2002 ZDES can be statistically linked to the 2001-2002 Zambia DHS. The published report, available from USAID, includes information from both surveys.
