The Burkina Faso Continuous Multisectoral Survey (EMC) was developed as a system to monitor indicators for sustainable development and Millennium Development Goals. The survey took place in four quarterly rounds, conducted between January and December 2014. A sample of 10,411 households were interviewed in each of the four survey visits. Four main questionnaires were used, one in each visit, as well as a price questionnaire that was used in each visit and an agricultural questionnaire that was implemented in the fourth visit. Questionnaires collected information on household characteristics, health status, household expenditures, food expenditures and consumption, employment, and reproductive histories of women over the age of 15. Child anthropometric measurements and immunization histories were also collected.

GPS coordinates were collected as part of the agricultural questionnaire.
