LDHS 2013 Final Report
The primary objective of the 2013 Liberia Demographic and Health Survey (2013 LDHS) is to provide up-to-date estimates of basic demographic and health indicators. Specifically, the 2013 LDHS collected information on fertility levels, marriage, sexual activity, fertility preferences, family planning methods, breastfeeding practices, nutrition, childhood and maternal mortality, maternal and child health, and HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). In addition, the 2013 LDHS provides estimates on HIV prevalence among adult Liberians.  The 2013 LDHS is a follow-up to the 2007 LDHS, the 1999/2000 LDHS1, and the 1986 LDHS. A subset of the indicators presented in the 2013 LDHS overlap with indicators produced as part of the 2009 and 2011 Liberia Malaria Indicator Surveys (LMIS).
 
The 2013 LDHS was implemented by the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS). Data collection took place from 10 March to 19 July 2013. The survey was conducted under the aegis of the country’s Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW). ICF International provided technical assistance through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded MEASURE DHS project, which provides support and technical assistance for population and health surveys in countries worldwide. USAID also provided material support directly to Government of Liberia for the survey. Other agencies and organizations that facilitated the successful implementation of the survey through technical or financial support were the National AIDS Control Program (NACP), the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), the Global Fund, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Development Fund (UNDP), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Montserrado Regional Blood Bank, the National Reference Laboratory, and the Government of Liberia.
