Dataset description

This dataset contains results and documentation from three cross-sectional urban household surveys done in Kathmandu (Nepal), Dhaka (Bangladesh) and Hanoi (Vietnam) in 2017 and 2018. The surveys primarily aimed to test the feasibility of using new urban household survey methods that try to better cover/capture informal/slum settlements using sampling frame data generated from random forest models that incorporate census data (which is often outdated and inaccurate) with multiple remotely-sensed covariates, such as urbanisation and infrastructure data. Additionally, the surveys also aimed to gather data on a range of topics including many that are not commonly collected in household surveys, particularly of urban areas: A) basic socio-demographic details of household members, B) household characteristics, assets, income and expenses, C) household migration and social capital, D) household member injury and injury related death, and, for one individual per household, E) migration, social capital and depression/mental health.
