The survey is of 200,000 households, approximately 3,000 in each province.

The survey consists of two parts, the first on population (number in household, age, sex, marital status, births, deaths, and migration in the past year) and the second on family planning of married women 15-49 years (number and dates of birth of children, number still living, educational levels, family planning methods used, and abortion).
