The 2015 Zimbabwe Demographic and Health Survey (ZDHS) was implemented by the Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZIMSTAT) from July through December 2015, with a nationally representative sample of over 11,000 households. All women age 15-49 and all men age 15-54 in these households were eligible for individual interviews. The 2015 ZDHS is a follow-up survey to the 1988, 1994, 1999, 2005-06, and 2010-11 ZDHS surveys and provides updated estimates of basic demographic and health indicators. This Key Indicators report presents a first look at selected findings of the 2015 ZDHS. A comprehensive analysis of the data will be presented in a Final Report to be published later in 2016.
