Compendium of Nutrition Intervention Coverage Indicators & Questions for Household Surveys

Compendium | PDF 1591KB

Date of Publication | August 2021

Building on a set of indicators for direct (i.e. “nutrition-specific”) intervention coverage proposed by Gillespie et al., the Compendium provides indicator definitions and accompanying questions for nutrition interventions across the maternal, newborn, and child health continuum of care. The Compendium’s content is primarily sourced from global household survey programs (e.g. Demographic Health Surveys [DHS]; Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys [MICS]), but also reflects findings from recent research on how to improve question validity. The Compendium aims to help stakeholders implementing standalone nutrition surveys or seeking to incorporate more nutrition indicators into multi-topic surveys.
