Description

This collection comprises the survey instruments and datasets for the cluster household, health facility and birth attendant quantitative surveys, which were conducted by the IDEAS II project in Gombe State, North-East Nigeria between November 2015 and August 2019. Data were collected to: (1) evaluate progress in the state against a set of priority indicators for maternal and newborn health (2) support local decision makers; and (3) improve measurement of priority indicators for maternal and newborn health by comparing the coverage estimates derived from multiple sources.

Data access

This collection is held for preservation purposes only. No access will be provided for the following reasons:

  1. Datasets contains information that may be used to identify research participants in some scenarios;
  2. Ethics approval and participant consent was provided on the basis that data would remain confidential. Any data sharing would require approval by the relevant ethics committees.

Data collection methods

Annual cluster household survey of individual women aged 13-49 about their uptake of health care, and the content of that health care during the pregnancy, intra-partum, and post-natal periods for their most recent live birth that occurred in the 12 months prior to survey date undertaken once a year.

The household survey was conducted in 80 clusters from Gombe State, a total of 6,000 households. Clusters were defined as segmented enumeration areas. Cluster sampling was performed by listing all enumeration areas within intervention and comparison wards, cumulating their population size, and systematically selecting 40 from the list with probability proportional to size. All households in selected enumeration areas were listed, and enumeration areas segmented into groups of 75 or fewer households: field teams randomly selected one segment from each enumeration area as the cluster to be surveyed. Sampling completed in roughly 6,000 households across the 80 clusters (40 intervention clusters and 40 comparison clusters) for each round of data collection and with approximately 1,000 women with a live birth in the 12 months prior to the survey.

The facility survey was completed every six months in the 97 primary health facilities providing services to household clusters plus 18 referral facilities in Gombe State. It comprised a readiness assessment, review of facility records and interviews with birth attendants. The facility questionnaire included a check list of staff, equipment, drugs, and infrastructure items present on the day of survey, and data extraction from maternity registers to ascertain facility workload during the last six months. In each facility, the birth attendant interview was conducted with the frontline worker who carried out the last delivery recorded in the maternity register. The questionnaire included questions about training and supervision, routine activities carried out, availability of supplies, workload during the last month and a detailed set of questions about behaviours during the last birth they attended.
