Malaria knowledge, attitudes and practices in Malawi: survey population characteristics : A nation-wide malaria knowledge, attitudes and practices survey in Malawi.
A national knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) survey was conducted in March-April 1992 to examine malaria illness and the people's response to illness and malaria prevention.
Fifty-one households in each of 30 randomly selected communities were sampled and information was recorded from 1,531 households and 7,025 individuals.
The population is characterized by low income (average household and per capita income were US $ 490 and $ 122, respectively) and low education levels (among adult women, 45% had no formal education and only 3.9% completed more than 8 years of schooling).
Characteristics of the population were similar to those found in the 1987 national census, suggesting that the survey population was representative of the larger population of Malawi.
