The survey measured the use and ownership of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs). It is complementary with the Ethiopia Malaria Indicator Survey (MIS), a nationally representative survey conducted during the same time period. The survey sample included 857 Ethiopian households. Respondents were primarily women but could be either gender. The survey includes households in urban and rural areas from the Amhara and Oromia regions. In addition to bednets, the survey covered insecticide use, indoor residual spraying, and asks for information on knowledge of malaria. Data collection was in October 2007 with a follow-up in February 2008 for comparison of seasonal net use.
