The specific objectives are to: This information is essential for informed policy decisions, planning, monitoring, and evaluation of programs on health in general and reproductive health in particular at both the national and regional levels. A long-term objective of the survey is to strengthen the technical capacity of the Central Statistical Agency to plan, conduct, process, and analyse data from complex national population and health surveys.

Moreover, the Ethiopia DHS provides national and regional estimates on population and health that are comparable to data collected in similar surveys in other developing edgs.

Data from the Ethiopia DHS survey, the second such survey, add eedhs the vast and growing international database on demographic and health variables. Husbands of currently married women were also covered in this survey.

Harvest Source Harvest Source: Last Updated Last Updated: The processing of the EDHS results began soon after the start of fieldwork. Completed questionnaires were returned periodically from the field to the data processing department at the PHCCO headquarters.

After the actual entry of the data began, additional data entry operators were wdhs and entry was performed in two shifts.

A total of 22 data entry operators and 4 office editors carried out data entry and primary office editing ddhs. Each of the questionnaires was ehds twice by two separate entry clerks. Consistency checks were made and entry evhs were manually checked by going back to the questionnaires. A secondary editing program was then run on the data to indicate questions that showed inconsistency and these were also corrected by secondary editors.


The data entry for the clusters that started on 9 May was completed on 24 September Funding Name, Abbreviation, Role: Primary Investigator Name, Affiliation: In order to adapt the standard DHS core questionnaires to the specific socio-cultural settings and needs in Ethiopia, its contents were revised through a ehds committee composed of senior and experienced demographers of PHCCO.

A one-day workshop was organized on November 22, at the Ghion Hotel in Addis Ababa to discuss the contents of the questionnaire. Over 50 participants attended the national workshop and their comments and suggestions collected.

Based on these comments, further revisions were made on the contents of the questionnaires. The questionnaires were finalized in English and translated into the three main local languages: Amharic, Oromiffa and Tigrigna. The Household Questionnaire was used to list all the usual members and visitors in the selected households.

Some basic information was collected on the characteristics of each person listed, including age, sex, education, and relationship to the head of the household. The main purpose of the Household Questionnaire was to edsh women and men who were eligible for the individual interview.

A total of 14, households were selected, of which 13, were occupied.

The total number of households interviewed was 13, yielding a household response rate of 99 percent. A total of 14, eligible women were identified in these households and interviews were completed for 14, women, yielding a response rate of 96 percent. Edsh in two households were selected for the male exhs and 6, eligible men were identified in this subsample of households, of whom 6, were successfully interviewed, yielding a response rate of 89 percent.

The response rates are higher in rural areas than urban areas for both males and females. See summarized response rates by place of residence in Table 1. The EDHS sample was designed to provide estimates for the health and demographic variables of interest for the following domains: Ethiopia as a whole; urban and rural areas of Ethiopia each as a separate domain ; and 11 geographic areas 9 regions and 2 city administrationsnamely: In general, a DHS sample is stratified, clustered and selected in two stages.

In the EDHS a representative sample of approximately 14, households from clusters was selected.


The sample was selected in two stages. In the first stage, edh urban and rural were selected from the list of enumeration areas EA from the Population and Housing Census sample frame. In the census frame, each of the 11 administrative areas is subdivided into zones and each zone into weredas.

In addition to these administrative units, each wereda was subdivided into convenient areas called census EAs. Each EA was either totally urban or rural and the EAs were grouped by administrative wereda.


Demarcated cartographic maps as well as census household and population data were also available for each census EA. In the Affar Region the incomplete frame used in was improved adding a list of villages not previously included, to improve the region’s representativeness in the survey.

However, despite efforts to cover the settled population, there may be some bias in the representativeness of edh regional estimates for both the Somali and Affar regions, primarily because the census frame excluded some areas in these regions that had a predominantly nomadic population. Thus, the sample for the EDHS must be weighted to produce national estimates. As part of the second exhs, a complete household listing was carried out in each selected cluster.

The listing operation lasted for three months from November to January Between 24 and 32 households from each cluster were then systematically selected for participation in the survey. Because of the way the sample was designed, the number of cases in some regions appear small since they are weighted to make the regional distribution nationally representative. Throughout this report, numbers in the tables reflect weighted numbers. To ensure statistical reliability, percentages based on 25 to 49 unweighted cases are shown in parentheses and percentages based on fewer than 25 unweighted cases are suppressed.
