The National Living Standard Survey or NLSS used the population census enumeration areas as the primary sampling units; a total of 22,200 households were surveyed. Topics included household expenditures, health status and use of health services, vaccinations, employment and income. At one point, the survey was available from the National Bureau of Statistics; however, it seems to be currently unavailable. The questionnaire is available from Global Extension of Social Security (GESS).
