Abstract

This manual presents a sampling methodology which can generate estimates of health facilities and their characteristics. It can also be used to tie characteristics of the sampled facilities to those of the serviced population. This manual proposes and recommends two sampling designs. The first is for a stand-alone health facility survey, and the second is for a health facility survey linked to a household survey. Both recommended sampling designs provide unbiased estimates of facilities and their characteristics. However, the linked sampling design provides additional information on the health service environment for resident populations in the household survey sample areas.
