The sample of 4,774 Qatari citizen households is based on the 1997 census. The survey instrument consists of four questionnaires: household health status, household environmental conditions, reproductive health, and child health.  The first two questionnaires were successfully administered to 4,207 households. The reproductive health questionnaire was answered by 3,787 ever-married women under 50 years of age, while the child health questionnaire gathered information on 3,775 children under five years of age. The report and tabulations may be available through the library system.
