PDF File Size: 2.42 MB | Download   
The 2006 Nepal Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) is the seventh in a series of
demographic surveys conducted in the country and is the third survey conducted as part of the worldwide Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) program. The survey was conducted under the aegis of the Population Division of the Ministry of Health and Population and implemented by New ERA. Technical support for the survey was provided by Macro International Inc., and financial support was provided by the United States Agency for International Development through its mission in Nepal. The 2006 NDHS supplements and complements the information collected through the censuses, updates the available information on population and health issues, and provides guidance in
planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating Nepal’s health programs. Further, the results of the survey assist in the monitoring of the progress made towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The 2006 NDHS includes topics related to fertility levels and determinants, family planning, fertility preferences, infant, child, adult and maternal mortality, maternal and child health, nutrition,
knowledge of HIV/AIDS and women’s empowerment. The 2006 NDHS for the first time also
includes anemia testing among women age 15-49 and children age 6-59 months. As well as providing national estimates, the survey also provides disaggregated data at the level of various domains such as ecological region, development region, as well as for urban and rural areas. This being the third survey of its kind, there is considerable trend information on reproductive and health care over the past 10 years.
