Anthropometric Data-Comparing ERSS and DHS (English)

In 2011-2012, Ethiopia’s central statistical agency, in collaboration with the World Bank, conducted the first wave of the Ethiopia rural socioeconomic survey (ERSS), which collects detailed data on household welfare and income-generating activity. The ERSS sample includes 4,000 households that are representative of small towns and rural areas; wave 2 will be expanded to include urban areas and will run from 2013 to 2014. This note evaluates the performance of the ERSS-wave 1 anthropometric indicators through a series of data checks and comparisons.
