The third of the Albania LSMS, this survey consisted of a panel of the 2002 survey participants, making it wave 2 of a panel survey; it included approimately half of the households surveyed in the 2002 LSMS.  The sample was nationally, but not regionally representative.  The survey panel was repeated in 2004.

The 2003 survey was a shortened version of the 2002 survey, but it included some new questions as well.  New topics included details as to Internet and mobile phone use, and a more detailed section on employment. The health module was much reduced; however, new questions on tobacco use were added.
