Brief Description


The 2007 Liberia Demographic and Health Survey (LDHS) is the third in a series of DHS surveys to be held in Liberia—the first two having been implemented in 1986 and 1999-2000— and is the first to include HIV testing on a nationally representative sample of adults. Teams visited 298 sample points across Liberia and collected data from a nationally representative sample of more than 7,000 women and 6,000 men age 15-49. The primary purpose of the 2007 LDHS is to provide policymakers and planners with detailed information on fertility, family planning, childhood mortality, maternal and child health, domestic violence, maternal mortality, nutrition, knowledge of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, and HIV prevalence rates.
