The Ethiopia Mini Demographic and Health Survey 2014 (EMDHS) was carried out by the Central Statistical Agency to support the monitoring and evaluation for Phase IV of the Ethiopia Health Sector Development Program (HSDP). The survey collected socioeconomic, demographic, and health data on women ages 15-49 years. Topics covered included contraceptive use, birth history, child mortality, and maternal care.

Two questionnaires were used; one for the household and one for women. A total of 8,475 households were interviewed, and 8,070 women were enumerated. Weight and height measurements were taken for 4,893 children under age 5.
