INDEPTH is a pioneer in health and population research, providing robust answers to some of the most important questions in development. Through its global network of health and demographic surveillance system (HDSS) field sites in Africa, Asia and Oceania, it is capable of producing reliable longitudinal data not only about the lives of people in low- and middle-income countries, but also about the impact on those lives of development policies and programmes.

The INDEPTH Data Repository now includes data from 20 HDSSs (further 4 to be released later) covering 11 countries while INDEPTHStats now includes data from 31 HDSSs covering 15 countries.  Read more
