This short paper does not attempt a comprehensive review of survey data evaluation and analysis. Its purpose is to draw attention to certain basic considerations which are already known and to raise a number of issues connected with the new approach to data collection through integrated, multi subject programmes of surveys. The paper includes a number of the ideas expressed in the document entitled “Strategies for the Analysis of WFS Data” (World Fertility Survey, Technical paper No. 9, January 1977). However the discussion has to be of a general nature because it related to all the subjects that can be investigated by household surveys rather than a 3ingle specific area.
