The sample was based on a revised national master sample that has been developed out of the 2002 Census information. For the 2007 HBS, the national master sample provided the primary sampling units (PSUs) for the national urban and rural sample. It was supplemented with additional PSUs to provide a regional sample for Dar es Salaam, so that the survey provides estimates for Dar es Salaam region, other urban areas and rural areas.
Primary sampling units were selected using probability proportional to size, with the number of household recorded in the Census preparatory estimates being the measures of size. A comprehensive household listing was undertaken in each of the sampled clusters. Information on a number of household durable assets was collected for each household during the household listing exercise. This information was used to stratify households within each cluster into high, middle and low income households. Separate proportional samples were then drawn from each of these categories. The sample selection was done in the head office and each regional supervisor was supplied with their respective list of pre-selected households.
