DHS-8 Questionnaire Portal open now through March 1

Dear Colleagues,

The open comment period to provide input into The DHS Program's model questionnaires, optional modules, and biomarkers has begun.

The Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) Program, in collaboration with USAID, is in the process of reviewing the Model Questionnaires and optional modules used for The Program's flagship Demographic and Health Surveys. The objective of this review is to revise these tools under the DHS-8 contract to better meet current and emerging data needs. To this end, we are seeking input on all of the DHS Model Questionnaires, optional special topic questionnaire modules, and biomarkers that are currently in use by The DHS Program. The last comprehensive review and revision of these tools took place in 2014.

Several changes were made to the Model Questionnaires in DHS-7 in response to comments received during the review process in 2014 for that round of the project. For example, questions on vaccinations were revised in response to advances in childhood immunization programs, and questions were added on postnatal care for women and newborns, on ownership of title or deed to dwelling and land, and on smoking.

The DHS Program has opened the DHS-8 Questionnaire Review Portal on the DHS User Forum to receive your requests for changes. The Portal includes instructions on how to submit requests for changes, submission forms, and other supporting documentation.

Please contact if you have questions about the DHS-8 questionnaire review process.

We look forward to receiving your input via the DHS-8 Questionnaire Review Portal.
