1 Making the Questionnaires Relevant to Policy To successfully adapt the LSMS questionnaires and ensure that the data will be able to support policy-relevant analysis, it is necessary to consult with government officials, policy advisors and others who are involved in designing and evaluating policies. Each section of the questionnaire must accurately reflect the structure of local institutions, programs and policies. Each section must also contain the questions necessary to gather the data required to analyze the usefulness and effectiveness of those institutions, programs and policies.

However, working from existing materials has been difficult because questionnaires were not available in Russian and because questionnaires from other regions reflected situations that were not applicable in the former Soviet Union. To facilitate the use of LSMS surveys in the countries of the former Soviet Union, PRDPH developed household, community and price questionnaires that reflect the basic institutions and policy concerns of the countries of the former Soviet Union. These questionnaires have been translated into Russian.

In order to conduct policy-relevant research, measures are needed of household income, labor market status, educational attainment, household expenditure on things other than health. From the objective of gathering the information necessary to conduct policy analysis we derive most of the guidelines and constraints that must be considered when adapting the questionnaires for use in a specific country. When adapting the survey, it is important to keep in mind that although the LSMS questionnaire collects information on health and medical care, it is not a health survey.
