Guatemalan Survey of Family Health (EGSF), 1995 (ICPSR 2344)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The Guatemalan Survey of Family Health (EGSF) was undertaken to investigate the health of children under the age of five and women during pregnancy and childbirth residing in 60 communities within the departments (geopolitical units) of Chimaltenango, Suchitepequez, Totonicapan, and Jalapa in Guatemala. Data were collected at the household, individual, and community levels to gain an in-depth understanding of the way residents in these rural populations think about their health, treatment, and family relations. Data at the household level (Parts 1-5, 90-92) provide information on household members, relation to household head, age, education, and language used. The individual-level data (Parts 6-37) describe the respondent's background, marital/relationship history, social ties and social support, and economic status, along with health beliefs, a complete birth history, knowledge and use of contraception, health problems and treatment during the last two pregnancies, and anthropometry on mothers and children. Extensive data were gathered regarding the health problems and treatment for each of the two youngest children born since January 1990, with particular focus on diarrhea and respiratory infections. The community data (Parts 41-60) supply information gathered from three knowledgeable individuals called "key informants" about occupations in the community, crops grown, wages, utilities and community services, and the history of the community. Parts 61-89 contain information regarding Health Posts (health care centers) through interviews conducted with key informants, doctors (Parts 72-80), and other health service providers (Parts 81-89), including traditional providers such as curers, midwives, and bone setters, regarding their practices, patients, referrals, fees, payment, and the use of specific treatments.

Scope of Study

Subject Terms:   birth, child health, communities, families, family size, family structure, fertility, health, health problems, households, income, rural population, social networks

Geographic Coverage:   Global, Guatemala

Time Period:  

  • 1995-05--1995-10

Date of Collection:  

  • 1995

Universe:   Household heads and women between the ages of 18 and 35 in Guatemala.

Data Types:   clinical data, survey data

Data Collection Notes:

The logical record length data and data definition statements were extracted from SAS transport files, which are available from RAND.

Although the household and women's individual samples are approximately self-weighting within each of the four departments, the sample is not self-weighting across the four departments. See the documentation for additional details.

Questions regarding the data should be directed to RAND at the EGSF email address: egsf-supp@rand.org.

Additional Guatemala-related publications may be found under the EGSF description on RAND's Family Life Surveys Web site.

Methodology

Sample:   Stratified clustered probability sample of households residing in four rural departments (geopolitical units) of Guatemala: Chimaltenango, Suchitepequez, Totonicapan, and Jalapa. The sampling plan was based on a target of interviewing approximately 3,000 women aged 18-35 in 60 rural communities within the four departments. The sample of communities was drawn from communities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants within each of the departments.

Data Source:

personal interviews and medical exams
