Dear Colleagues,

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 will be 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 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.

Key Dates

We will be sending you a follow-up email on January 15, 2019 with guidance and tools for submitting feedback to us. All input must be submitted via a DHS-8 Questionnaire Review Portal which will be available on The DHS Program User Forum. We expect the Questionnaire Review Portal to be open for submissions from January 21 - March 1, 2019.

We welcome your input via the portal once it is launched.

Regards,
S.

Instructions for Requesting Changes to the DHS Model Questionnaires,
Optional Modules, and Biomarkers for DHS-8

  1. Requests for changes must be made through the DHS User Forum. A section in the DHS User Forum has been set up as a portal to receive requests for changes to the DHS model questionnaires, optional modules, and biomarkers. This portal is organized according to the various health topics that The DHS Program covers. To submit a request for changes, create a post on the DHS-8 Questionnaire Review section of the DHS User Forum under the relevant topic and follow these instructions.

  2. For DHS-8, The DHS Program has developed standard forms for requesting changes.

    Requestors should make their suggestions by filling in one or more of these two forms and attaching the form to your post:

    • Template for Requests for Revisions to the DHS Model Questionnaires, Optional Modules, and Biomarkers for DHS-8

    • Template for Suggested Deletions

    Requestors should frame their requests for additions and revisions in terms of indicators. By an indicator, we simply mean a well-defined statistic that can be measured using the survey or biomarker data. The indicator does not need to be internationally agreed upon or appear on any formal indicator lists.

    If multiple indicators are derived from a set of related questions, these indicators should be included on the same submission form. Requestors should submit more than one form if they are requesting indicators that measure discrete concepts.

    Create a separate post for each submission form and attach the submission form to your post.

    Information that does not fit easily on the submission form can be attached as an additional file to the same post. If there is a separate attachment accompanying the submission form, please indicate this on the form, and attach the file(s) to your post. Any information you wish to provide beyond what is requested on the form can also be entered as text directly in your DHS User Forum post.

    If there are questions on the submission form that you feel are not relevant to your requested change, you may leave them blank. However, we require you to respond to questions 2 and 3 on the indicator definition and rationale.

    Please post submissions under the relevant topic. Please post submissions only once, and not under multiple topics. If you are unsure which topic is most appropriate, consult the document "Existing questions organized by topic" and make your best guess. If we at DHS feel a post should be re-categorized to facilitate our review process, we will take care of this.

  3. We encourage you to read posts in your fields of expertise that have been submitted by others and comment on them by writing a reply in the same thread.

  4. There is no submission form to complete for comments related to the topic areas of sampling and methodology and questionnaire design. Requestors may type their comments directly into their post on the DHS User Forum and/or attach files to their post as needed.

  5. Questions about the questionnaire review process or how to complete the submission forms can be sent to dhsqre@dhsprogram.com.

The DHS Model Biomarker Questionnaire is attached below for reference. However, for the Biomarkers and Anthropometry topic we are not soliciting input on the content of Biomarker Questionnaire, per se. Rather, we are interested in hearing your suggestions for new biomarkers or changes to the field and/or laboratory procedures for existing biomarkers.

The biomarkers included in the DHS Model Biomarker Questionnaire include height and weight for children, women, and men; hemoglobin for children, women, and men; and HIV serology for women and men. Please note, however, that the Model Biomarker Questionnaire has not been updated to reflect the HIV testing approach currently recommended by The DHS Program, which includes rapid testing in the household with immediate return of results in addition to laboratory testing to calculate HIV prevalence.

In addition to the 3 biomarkers included in the Model Biomarker Questionnaire, The DHS Program has conducted many other biomarkers across our various surveys. A list of these biomarkers, as well as surveys including specific biomarkers, can be identified through the "Survey Characteristics" tab in the Survey Search function on The DHS Program website.

Instructions for Requesting Changes to the DHS Model Questionnaires,
Optional Modules, and Biomarkers for DHS-8

  1. Requests for changes must be made through the DHS User Forum. A section in the DHS User Forum has been set up as a portal to receive requests for changes to the DHS model questionnaires, optional modules, and biomarkers. This portal is organized according to the various health topics that The DHS Program covers. To submit a request for changes, create a post on the DHS-8 Questionnaire Review section of the DHS User Forum under the relevant topic and follow these instructions.

  2. For DHS-8, The DHS Program has developed standard forms for requesting changes.

    Requestors should make their suggestions by filling in one or more of these two forms and attaching the form to your post:

    • Template for Requests for Revisions to the DHS Model Questionnaires, Optional Modules, and Biomarkers for DHS-8

    • Template for Suggested Deletions

    Requestors should frame their requests for additions and revisions in terms of indicators. By an indicator, we simply mean a well-defined statistic that can be measured using the survey or biomarker data. The indicator does not need to be internationally agreed upon or appear on any formal indicator lists.

    If multiple indicators are derived from a set of related questions, these indicators should be included on the same submission form. Requestors should submit more than one form if they are requesting indicators that measure discrete concepts.

    Create a separate post for each submission form and attach the submission form to your post.

    Information that does not fit easily on the submission form can be attached as an additional file to the same post. If there is a separate attachment accompanying the submission form, please indicate this on the form, and attach the file(s) to your post. Any information you wish to provide beyond what is requested on the form can also be entered as text directly in your DHS User Forum post.

    If there are questions on the submission form that you feel are not relevant to your requested change, you may leave them blank. However, we require you to respond to questions 2 and 3 on the indicator definition and rationale.

    Please post submissions under the relevant topic. Please post submissions only once, and not under multiple topics. If you are unsure which topic is most appropriate, consult the document "Existing questions organized by topic" and make your best guess. If we at DHS feel a post should be re-categorized to facilitate our review process, we will take care of this.

  3. We encourage you to read posts in your fields of expertise that have been submitted by others and comment on them by writing a reply in the same thread.

  4. There is no submission form to complete for comments related to the topic areas of sampling and methodology and questionnaire design. Requestors may type their comments directly into their post on the DHS User Forum and/or attach files to their post as needed.

  5. Questions about the questionnaire review process or how to complete the submission forms can be sent to dhsqre@dhsprogram.com.
