SQUAT is a quantitative survey that was conducted in rural areas of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Bihar. In each state, we visited two or three districts that had changes in household open defecation between the 2001 and 2011 censuses that were similar to the state as a whole. Within districts, villages were randomly selected, and within villages, we used an in-field randomization procedure to select households. Subject to the constraint that male surveyors interviewed male respondents and female surveyors interviewed female respondents, respondents for the full survey were randomly chosen from the household roster. We interviewed 3,235 adults about their defecation practices and views on latrines and latrine use, and collected individual level latrine use data for 22,787 household members.
The questionnaires for the survey are available below.
