Kagera Health and Development Survey 2010: Basic Information Document

Abstract

The Kagera Health and Development Survey 2010 (KHDS 2010) took place in 2010 as the sixth survey wave. Earlier waves of the survey include the four waves from 1991-1994 and the fifth wave in 2004. The KHDS 2010 was designed to provide data to understand changes in living standards of the sample of individuals originally interviewed 16-19 years ago. The KHDS 2010 attempted to re-interview all respondents ever interviewed in the KHDS 91-94 – irrespective of whether the respondent had moved out of the original village, region, or country, or was residing in a new household.

This document is designed to provide information to enable proper and effective use of the KHDS 2010 data. Since KHDS 2010 is based on the previous waves of the survey, data users are encouraged to carefully review \"User’s Guide to the Kagera Health and Development Survey Datasets\" (World Bank, 2004) for the original baseline 1991-1994 KHDS, and \"Kagera Health and Development Survey 2004: Basic Information Document\" (Beegle et al, 2006) for the 2004 wave. These documents serve to complement this KHDS 2010 Basic Information Document.
