Bangladesh 2006 Urban Health Survey Released
The 2006 Urban Health Survey (UHS06) was designed to obtain a broad health profile of the urban population of Bangladesh. In particular, the survey collected information about slum and non-slum populations of the six City Corporations (there was no distinct Rangpur division at the time) and overall District Municipality populations. The survey instrument covered many channels of health and health behaviors and solicited a great deal of information from respondents about their households and communities.
The survey data and supporting materials can be downloaded from the Odum Institute Dataverse Network, a data archive maintained by UNC’s Howard W. Odum Institute for Social Science.
