The objective of this book is to provide
detailed advice on how to design multi-topic household
surveys based on the experience of past household surveys.
The book will help identify define objectives, identify data
needed to analyze objectives, and draft questionnaires to
collect such data. Much of the book is based on the
experience of the World Bank's Living Standard's
Measurement Study (LSMS) program, established in 1980 to
explore ways the accuracy, timeliness, and policy relevance
of household survey data collected in developing countries.
It is part of an attempt to extend the range of policy
issues that can be analyzed with LSMS data; to increase the
reliability and accuracy of the surveys; and to make it
easier to implement LSMS surveys. The books first discuss
the "big picture" concerning the overall design of
surveys, modules to be used, and procedures for combining
modules into questionnaires and questionnaires into surveys.
Individual modules are discussed in depth as well as major
policy issues. The process of manipulating modules to form a
better 'fit' in the case of a specific survey is
examined. Specific modules include: consumption, education,
health employment, anthropometry, non-labor income, housing,
price data, environmental issues, fertility, household
income, savings, household enterprises, and time use. The
third volume provides draft questionnaires, referenced in
the prior chapters.
