Abstract

Multitopic household surveys like the LSMS are designed to gather data to be used for analyzing household welfare, including analysis of access to and use of social services, the effects of government policies on living conditions, and how households behave in response to changes in the economic environment or in government programs. To meet these objectives, multitopic household surveys often collect data not only at the household level but also at the community level and even, in some cases, at the level of facilities (such as health clinics or schools).
