  • A household questionnaire including modules for education, economic activity, water and sanitation, and housing¬† conditions.
  • A questionnaire for individual women aged 15-49 years covering topics such as marital status, tetanus toxoid vaccination, maternal care, contraceptive use, and health literacy.
