The following description of this survey appeared in the 1991 edition of Dynamic Database: A Catalogue of Survey Data Files, Voorburg: International Statistical Institute.
Name of survey: Enquête Nationale sur la Fécondité et la Planification Familiale
Executive agency: Ministère de la Santé Publique
Date of fieldwork: 1980
Universe: All women, 15-50
Coverage: National, 99%
Contents: WFS Core Mark 1 + fertility regulation and family planning modules and health data
Supplementary surveys: Household members (n = 104,129, self-weighting)
A household survey was conducted on an enlarged sample. Information on
life-time and current fertility was collected, as well as mortality data
(maternal and paternal orphanhood plus details of deaths in the last 24
months). Uniquely within the WFS programme, health data was collected during
the household survey: type of illness suffered by any member in the last 12
months; whether health facility was used; satisfaction with service; travelling
time; reason for non-use of health facility. Other household characteristics
include: toilet and water facilities; number of rooms; construction of the
dwelling; presence of electricity; ownership of consumer durables. A derived
set of variables on household composition have been added to the file.
The individual survey was administered to a subsample of women identified in
the household survey, in an independent field operation starting a few weeks
after completion of the household survey. Interviewers for both surveys were
drawn from para-medical staff of the Ministry of Public Health.
Unusually detailed information on the health care of the last and penultimate
child was collected in the individual survey: place of and medical assistance
at birth; number and dates of each vaccination against measles, tuberculosis,
DPT, polio; mother's knowledge of these diseases and of the immunization
schedule; place of vaccination and mother's satisfaction with service provided.
