Household surveys are an important source of information about education systems. International survey programs such as the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Clusters Surveys (MICS) have become standard sources for international databases on education statistics. Other types of surveys have been infrequently utilized and their education data is sometimes not well understood and standardized. The project conducted an assessment of 30 household surveys and analyzes the quality of the information collection process. It provides general recommendations that should be useful to individuals and agencies involved in the design of education questionnaires for household surveys and the use of the resultant data.
