The 2005 Ethiopia Demographic and Health Survey (EDHS) is a nationally representative survey of 14,070 women age 15-49 and 6,033 men age 15-59. The EDHS is the second comprehensive survey conducted in Ethiopia as part of the worldwide Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) project. The primary purpose of the EDHS is to furnish policymakers and planners with detailed information on fertility, family planning, infant, child, adult and maternal mortality, maternal and child health, nutrition and knowledge of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. In addition, in one of two households selected for the survey, women age 15-49 and children age 6-59 months were tested for anaemia, and women age 15-49 and men age 15-59 were tested for HIV. The 2005 EDHS is the first survey in Ethiopia to provide population-based prevalence estimates for anaemia and HIV. (excerpt)
