The Performance, Monitoring, and Accountability Survey (PMA2020) is a multinational, five-year initiative to monitor key indicators for water, sanitation, and family planning. The project was implemented by local research organizations in ten countries using female enumerators and smartphone-based software. Beginning with the fourth round survey in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, data were collected in both Kinshasa province, and Kongo Central.

The data were collected through questionnaires for households, women ages 15-49, and service delivery points (SDPs). The major topics covered in the household and women's questionnaire included household characteristics, assets, sanitation, fertility, and contraceptive use. The SDP questionnaires focused on facility type, location, staffing, and size based on the number of beds.

The sample size for Kinshasa was 1,850 households, 2,568 females, and 177 SDPs. The sample size for Kongo Central was 1,664 households, 1,689 females, and 116 SDPs.
