Surveys

Data is collected from facilities, physicians, patients, and households using the Household Survey, Patient Exit Survey, Physician Survey, and Facility Survey

Household Survey

The QIDS Household Survey instrument collects information on the health status, growth, and cognitive development of children. Detailed information about socioeconomic and health status is obtained, including household food and health expenditures, source of water and sanitation, labor force participation, health insurance coverage, health service utilization, and wages. In addition, the household surveys collects detailed information about hospital utilization and cost for curative and preventive care received from public and private hospital providers in the past 12 months.

Cognitive data is also collected during the Household Survey administration. The three measures of cognitive development we used were the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID), the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scales of Intelligence (WPPSI), and the Home Observation and Measurement of the Environment (HOME).
