Dear DHS,

The attachment doesn't provide the water and sanitation questions to comment on. All that appears in the document is what I show in screenshot here.

Could you plead re-upload the existing questions, or confirm that they remain the same as what we see in the most recently-released DHSs? e.g. Guinea 2012?

I, and colleagues at WSP, would be interested especially in the definition of safe child feces disposal - this is perhaps more relevant to tabulation/indicator definition than questionnaires but I post here as well as in other relevant segments of the forum as you seem to be soliciting feedback here. In our understanding, DHS is in the process of changing it's definition of safe child feces disposal so that buried is considered unimproved. This would match the standard MICS tables, as well as UNICEF's current analysis methodology - shown for instance on page 18 of the Pneumonia and Diarrhea 2012 report (http://www.childinfo.org/files/Pneumonia_Diarrhoea_2012.pdf) and new country profiles WSP and UNICEF are developing.

Thanks in advance for re-uploading the questions.

Best,

Elizabeth

Dear Elizabeth,

The Questionnaires are located in the READ ME folder in the DHS-7 Questionnaire Review Forum. Please see the file titled "DHS Core/Model Questionnaires" in that folder. The READ ME folder also contains instructions and Guidelines for posting comments on the questionnaires.

Regarding your screenshot: We have categorized all questions in the existing questionnaires into categories and asked folks to post their comments to the appropriate category by opening a new thread within that category. Thus, the screen shot you provide was intentional - it lists all the questions that are categorized in the Water Supply and Sanitation category. The questionnaires contain over 600 questions so we do not repeat the entire question - please refer to the questionnaires themselves to see how questions are worded.

You acknowledge that your comment pertains to the tabulations/indicator definitions rather than the questionnaires, but we would appreciate if you post your comments to the "Water Supply and Sanitation" folder in the "DHS-7 Questionnaire Review" Forum (so other Handwashing folks will see it). Please provide a Subject title and include your name and organization affiliation.

We appreciate your interest in DHS data.
Please do write back if something is not clear.
Thank you,
Kia Reinis.

Dear Kia,
Thank you for your response. I'm not sure how I found myself on the page I posted on without seeing the READ ME folder first!
I will repost now as you suggested.
Best,
Elizabeth
