This analysis compares data from three studies carried out in Zambia in 2005, where it was possible to coordinate instrument design, sampling, and timing of fieldwork for a biannual household survey with two Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) studies. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the paper compares district-level data from the household survey measuring HIV/AIDS prevention indicators with data from two PLACE studies carried out in the same districts. In the two districts compared, all household and PLACE method interviews were completed during the period of May 2005 to October 2005.
