This was the fifth round of the Living Conditions Survey (ECV) in Ecuador. A sample of 13,536 nationally-representative households were selected to answer questions on topics of housing, household demographics, education, migration, employment, income, household expenditures, social capital, fertility, and health. There were three sections of the health module: one for those under five including anthropomorphic measurements, one for those over 12 years of age, and one for all people interviewed. Some libraries may be able to procure a report on the survey through the interlibrary loan system.
