Cross-sectional household surveys of diarrhoeal diseases : a comparison of data from the control of diarrhoeal diseases and demographic and health surveys programmes.
Cross-sectional household surveys are extensively used for data collection, priority setting and programme evaluation in developing countries.
They are now being promoted to assess a number of health care interventions such as Control of Diarrhoeal Diseases (CDD)
Few field studies of the validity and precision of data generated from these surveys have been carried out, in part because such work is rather demanding of resources.
The purpose of this study was to draw conclusions on validity and reliability of data from household surveys through a comparison of results from large-scale surveys on diarrhoea conducted by CDD and Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) programmes in developing countries.
