The 2015 LCMS survey was the seventh in its series. The sampling frame used for the 2015 LCMS was based off of the 2010 Census of Population and Housing. A total of 664 enumeration areas were selected from 25,600 enumeration areas across all 10 provinces of the country. The sample included 12,260 non-institutionalized households from urban and rural areas of the country. 

The questionnaire covered topics such as housing conditions and amenities, access to facilities and services, economic activities, community development, migration, and household events. The survey also collected information on child health and nutrition by taking anthropometric measurements of all children between the ages of 3-59 months and recording immunization history.
