The Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) Program has collected, analyzed, and disseminated accurate and representative data on population, health, HIV, and nutrition through more than 300 surveys in over 90 countries.
We Need Your Feedback!
The DHS Program recently unveiled a new style of final report. The 2014 Lesotho Demographic and Health Survey is the first final report published with this new style, and we are seeking feedback from users worldwide. Please take a few moments to browse the 2014 Lesotho DHS. If you are not familiar with the “old style” feel free to reference the 2009 LDHS as a comparison. Then answer a few brief questions about your impressions. Future reports depend on your thoughtful feedback. We ask you to please respond to the survey by Wednesday July 27, 2016.
