    Article - En anglais


    - To evaluate the various survey methods used in Somalia between 1991 and early 1993 while assessing documentation of mortality and malnutrition rates and common causes of morbidity and mortality.

    Data Sources

    Twenty-three population surveys were identified from the Center for Public Health Surveillance for Somalia, the United Nations Children's Fund, and other humanitarian organizations.

    Study Selection

    - Only surveys with defined populations and apparently systematic methodology that focused on mortality, morbidity, and/or nutritional status were included.


    - Extensive methodological differences were found among the 23 surveys.

    Target populations and sampling strategies varied widely.

    Twelve studies were considered not reproducible.
