DESCRIPTION: Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) are nationally representative household surveys with large sample sizes of about 5,000 households. DHS surveys provide data for a wide range of monitoring and impact evaluation indicators in the areas of population, health, and nutrition. The core questionnaire for MEASURE DHS+ emphasizes basic indicators and flexibility. Its compact size allows for the addition of special modules so that questionnaires can be tailored to meet host-country and USAID data needs. The standard DHS survey consists of a household questionnaire and a women's questionnaire. A nationally representative sample of women ages 15-49 are interviewed.Philippines: Survey data is available for 1993, 1998, 203, and 2008
