(INE), with technical and financial support from the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) provides new data which will serve to establish a representative information base on health, nutrition, water, hygiene and sanitation, education, and demography, amongst others. The report presented here contains the main results of the survey with detailed analysis of the themes discussed. In the first place we intend these statistics to enable us to up-date the statistical base line on the conditions of the Angolan population. In the future it will be used by the many sectors already mentioned in the regular tasks of planning, programming, monitoring and evaluation. This survey is the first operation and most extensive of its kind to collect and up-date data to be carried out in the country as a whole since Independence, and as such we believe that it will fulfil this objective. Secondly, the results presented here can be used as a point of departure for more detailed studies, which could contribute to a better understanding of the causes which determine the living conditions of the population, and for the better definition of programmes and policies which favour the child, other vulnerable groups and the most disadvantaged. To further these objectives, INE will be able to make the database available to interested parties in order to facilitate more specific research. The survey was the result of the collaboration of many national and international organisations. I
