Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (DHS - 2000)

This report summarizes the findings of the Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (RDHS-II 2000). The second undertaking of this type, the RDHS-II is a nationally representative survey conducted from June to November 2000 by the National Office of Population.

During the survey, which took place from June 26 to November 30, 2000, a total of 10,421 women age 15-49 and 2,717 men age 15-59 were interviewed. The RDHS-II provides information on population and health that is significant at the national level, at the level of residence, and at the level of prefectures. RDHS-II data are comparable with those of similar surveys conducted in other developing countries and thus permit international comparisons to be made.
