Missing Dimensions Survey Modules

In April 2007 OPHI launched the Missing Dimensions project with a workshop that proposed five short, 8-10 minute questionnaire modules that could be integrated into national household surveys for inclusion in individual or household surveys to improve data collection for each missing dimension. The survey modules were tested and revised.

The following criteria were used to identify suitable indicators for inclusion in individual or household surveys.

  • The indicators need to be internationally comparable.
  • They should assess both the instrumental and the intrinsic aspects of each dimension.
  • They must enable identification of changes in the missing dimensions over time.
  • They should draw on previous experience of particular indicators; notably we tried to use indicators that had been previously fielded and found to be ‘adequate’ measures for research purposes.
