Nutrition Survey Results Database

Subject/Objective: 
Information on the NICS Database The Nutrition Survey Results database presents the outcomes of the nutrition and mortality surveys which have been made available to NICS. All survey reports are checked for methodology and results. Only those surveys which correspond to the criteria mentioned below, following internationally agreed standards 1,2,3,4, are included in the database:
Methodology: 
Cluster sampling using a proportional to population size (PPS) sampling, with at least 25 clusters Systematic or simple random sampling Exhaustive surveys Sample size The required sample size for any given survey depends on the prevalence of malnutrition; therefore, no minimum sample size is defined for inclusion in the database. All surveys are included for which the 95% confidence intervals are sufficiently narrow to give interpretable results.
