Data Tables (HIV/AIDS Survey Indicators Database)

To create a data table, select criteria from the following three categories:

  • Surveys—A collection of results from the population-based and target group surveys stored in the HIV/AIDS Survey Indicators Database
  • Indicators—The applicable health indicators that are used to evaluate respondents' attitudes and behavior relative to the health risks measured by the surveys and prevalence data for HIV and other STIs
  • Background Characteristics—The available background data, such as age and education.
For instructions and to view examples from DHS+ and other surveys, go to How to Create Data Tables.

To build customized tables on population and health indicators from DHS surveys, go to STATcompiler.

Selected Surveys  Help

    1) All women age 15-49 in these households and all men age 15-49 in one-half of the households were eligible to be individually interviewed. In addition to the data collected through interviews with these women and men, capillary blood samples were collected from all children age 6-59 months, as well as from all eligible women and men age 15-49 for anaemia testing. Additionally, all children under the age of 5 years and eligible women and men age 15-49 were weighed and measured to assess their nutritional status. Finally, blood pressure (BP) was measured for eligible women and men in the households selected for the men’s interview to estimate the prevalence of hypertension among adult population in Albania.
    2) The HIV Test Data were not scrambled, and are therefore not available for analysis.
    3) Section on adult mortality
    4) NOTE: Survey was only of Northeast Region of Brazil and sample included Husbands[instead of All Men].
    5) NOTE: Sample included Husbands [instead of all All Men].
    6) NOTE: Sample included Husbands [instead of all All Men].
    7) Total and background characteristics include women age 13-49 (as opposed to the standard 15-49).
    8) A man’s survey will be carried out in one half of the sample, where HIV, anemia and parasitemia testing will also be part of the DHS.
    9) The age range for women was 12-49 instead of 15-49.
    10) NOTE: Sample included Husbands [instead of all All Men].
    11) Households interviewed for men 4873
    12) Testing water samples for E. coli took place in a subset of clusters.
    13) The equipment for measuring syphylis in the field proved faulty and all related variables are therefore not available in the recode data file. The scales used for measuring the weight of children did not have enough precision therefore all weight related variables for children were set to not applicable in the recode data file.
    14) Extra questions on male participation in health care
    15) Self-weighting sample
    16) An additional 842 Women Age: 50 to 64 were interviewed in 1/2 of the selected households.
    17) NOTE: Sample included Husbands [instead of all All Men].
    18) Survey is continuous, with 5 cycles. The data include cycles 1 and 2.
    19) Continuous survey, with 5 cycles. The data include cycles 1 through 5.
    20) NOTE: Sample included Husbands [instead of all All Men].
    21) Replacement households were chosen instead of random sampling. Women with no education and primary education are grouped because of small sample size.
    22) UGOD6A*.ZIP are data from the Field Rapid HIV Test.
    23) Health Examination Survey
