The National Nutrition Survey (ENN) 1988 was nationally-representative survey of nutritional status. In addition to detailed dietary information, questionnaires also collect information on health, education, employment status of household members as well as characteristics of the respondents' communities. Anthropometric measurements and blood samples were also collected.

A subsquent version of this survey was implemented in 1999.
