Kyrgyz Republic - Demographic and Health Survey 2012

Primary tabs

The 2012 Kyrgyz Demographic and Health Survey (KgDHS) is a nationally representative sample survey designed to provide information on population and health issues in the Kyrgyz Republic. The 2012 KgDHS, the country’s second DHS survey, was conducted by the National Statistical Committee (NSC) and the Ministry of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic from August through December 2012. The purpose of the 2012 KgDHS was to collect national and regional data on fertility and contraceptive use, maternal and child health and nutrition, childhood mortality, domestic violence against women, and knowledge and behavior regarding tuberculosis, HIV infection, and other sexually transmitted infections. The survey obtained detailed information on these issues from women and men of reproductive age. Data are presented by region (oblast) when sample sizes permit such calculations. The 2012 KgDHS results are intended to provide the information needed to evaluate existing social programs and to design new strategies for improving the health status of the country’s women and children and enhancing their access to health services. The survey also contributes to the growing international database on demographic and health-related indicators.

- Household- Individual- Children age 0-5- Woman age 15-49- Man age 15-59
Primary Investigator Name, Affiliation: 
National Statistical Committee (NSC) - Government of Kyrgyz Republic; Ministry of Health - Government of Kyrgyz Republic
Sampling Procedure: 
The 2012 KgDHS sample was designed to permit detailed analyses, including estimation of fertility, infant/child mortality, and abortion rates, at the national level and separately for urban and rural areas. Many indicators can also be estimated at the regional (oblast) level. A representative probability sample of 8,216 households was selected for the 2012 KgDHS. The sample was selected in two stages. In the first stage, 316 clusters were selected from the sampling frame, which is a complete list of enumeration areas created for the 2009 Population and Housing Census. In the second stage, before the main survey, a household listing operation was conducted in each of the selected clusters. Households were then randomly selected from the newly updated listing for participation in the survey. All women age 15-49 who either were permanent residents of the households in the 2012 KgDHS sample or were visitors present in the household on the night before the survey were eligible to be interviewed. Interviews were completed with 8,208 women. In addition, in a subsample of one-third of the households selected for the survey, all men age 15-49 were eligible to be interviewed if they were either permanent residents or visitors present in the household on the night before the survey. Interviews were completed with 2,413 men. For further details on sample design and implementation, see Appendix A of the final report.
Response Rates: 
A total of 8,208 households were selected for the sample, of which 8,083 were occupied at the time of the fieldwork and 8,040, or over 99 percent, were successfully interviewed. In these households, 8,286 women age 15-49 were identified. Interviews were completed with 99 percent of these women. Of the 2,495 eligible men identified, 97 percent were successfully interviewed.
Questionnaires: 
Three questionnaires were used in the 2012 KgDHS: the Household Questionnaire, the Woman’s Questionnaire, and the Man’s Questionnaire. The questionnaires were based on model survey instruments developed in the MEASURE DHS program. The DHS model questionnaires were adapted for use in the Kyrgyz Republic by experts from the National Statistical Committee and the Ministry of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic. Suggestions were also sought from USAID; a number of UN agencies, including the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), UNICEF, and UNFPA; and other international and nongovernmental organizations. All three questionnaires were developed in English and translated into Russian and Kyrgyz. The questionnaires were pretested in May 2012.
Data Editing: 
The processing of the KgDHS results began shortly after fieldwork commenced. Completed questionnaires were returned regularly from the field to NSC headquarters in Bishkek, where they were entered and edited by data processing personnel specially trained for this task. The data processing personnel included a supervisor, a questionnaire administrator (who ensured that the expected number of questionnaires from all clusters was received), several office editors, 13 data entry operators, and a secondary editor. The concurrent processing of the data was an advantage because the senior DHS technical staff could advise field teams of problems detected during data entry. In particular, tables were generated to check various data quality parameters, and the results were used to provide specific feedback to the teams to improve performance. The data entry and editing phase of the survey was completed in February 2013.
