Designing Household Survey Questionnaires : Lessons from Ten Years of LSMS Experience
Governments need accurate, up-to-date, and relevant data from household surveys in order to make sound economic and social policy decisions. They need these data to measure and monitor poverty, and other dimensions of living standards. The World Bank's Living Standards Measurement Survey (LSMS) is one of the most important international programs created to support the collection of household survey data in developing countries. Drawing upon the past ten years of experience the World Bank has accumulated with the LSMS, the objective of this book is to provide detailed advice on how to design multi-topic household surveys, based upon the experience of past household surveys. This book was written to help individuals and organizations that are planning a comprehensive, multi-topic survey to define the objectives of their survey, to identify the data needed to analyse those objectives, and to draft the questionnaires that will collect those data.
