The SHAHAR project was designed to increase the income and improve the living conditions and environment of poor urban communities in several cities in Bangladesh; this panel survey was designed as an evaluation of those interventions in Dinajpur. The baseline survey interviewed 614 households in July and August 2002, collecting information on each household's demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, household expenditures, nutrition and diet habits, health, and anthropometric measurements of women and children under 5. A community questionnaire was also used to collect information on the characteristics and living conditions of the urban communities.

This round of the survey was conducted in March 2003. The questionnaires were used again on the same population of households and individuals. The community module was not present in this round.
