The Welfare Monitoring Survey III was conducted in two phases in 1997. It samples 10,873 households drawn from the National Sample Survey and Evaluation Programme (NASSEP) III. The WMS III includes a module which uses the Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire (CWIQ), but does not include a fertility module as in previous surveys--fertility is captured in more detail in the 1998 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey.
