What we do

 

What we do in the field?  

At the KDS-HRC field site, we do a continuous tracking of vital events and health information. Demographic events that changes population characteristics such as births, deaths, immigration and outmigration are of particular interest.

While deaths and out-migration reduces population size, immigration and birth increases population size, this dynamism is called open cohort.

Other events like marital status change, immunization, morbidity and birth outcomes are also under follow-up. For deceased we fill verbal autopsy to identify the cause of death.
