"This sixth edition...provides information collected in mid-1993 on the availability of selected national vital, hospital, health manpower resources, and population-based health survey statistics. Information for the 40 nations included in this guide was obtained from the government and official agencies that are listed in the guide for further reference. The main purpose of the guide is to provide information not readily available in published form. It is not designed to provide information on the availability of measures considered universally documented, such as crude birth and death rates or life expectancy at birth. A secondary purpose is to support the World Health Organization's goal of developing a common basis for international data comparison. An addition to expand the information provided on national population-based health surveys is in this edition. A profile of each survey is included, citing the title, responsible agency or ministry, objective, scope, collection method, data content, frequency, availability of data, and the contact agency for further information. Also included is a matrix of the data variables from the surveys."
