Abstract

This chapter illustrates some of the problems associated with the collection of data on childhood diarrhoea in DHS surveys, showing how an ostensibly minor issue such as the order of questions may affect the ultimate prevalence value. An external validation of survey data on child health can be carried out through a substantive comparison between the results of demographic surveys and longitudinal epidemiological studies. -from Editor
