"The Sierra Leone Integrated Household Survey (SLIHS) is Sierra Leone’s Living Standard Measurement Survey (LSMS) or household income and expenditure survey (HIES), which is conducted regularly in order to collect useful socio-economic data to support government planning processes. The 2018 SLIHS data collection covered the period January-December 2018, and it was the third round, which followed the 2011 and 2003 rounds. SLIHS is a multi-topic household survey that collects detailed household incomes and expenditures, which are the ingredient for the monetary poverty assessment and collects information on education, health, employment, housing, and household assets."
