General impressions
Three types of questionnaires were used. The household questionnaire was used to collect basic socio-economic conditions of usual household members and visitors. The questionnaire also included screening questions that were used to determine persons with disabilities. All those who reported at least one activity limitation were further interviewed individually. The adult questionnaire was used to collect information from all persons aged 15 years and above who were identified in the household questionnaire as having some form of disability. The children Questionnaire collected information from all children identified as having disabilities but collected more or less the same information in the adult questionnaire.
The questions of the detailed adult questionnaire are similar to those used in the Swaziland survey (SINTEF).
