The National Family Health Survey 2019-20 (NFHS-5), the fifth in the NFHS series, provides information on
population, health, and nutrition for India and each state/union territory (UT). Like NFHS-4, NFHS-5 also
provides district-level estimates for many important indicators.
This fact sheet provides information on key indicators and trends for Assam. NFHS-5 fieldwork for Assam was conducted from 17 June, 2019 to 21 December, 2019 by Nielsen India Pvt. Ltd. Information was gathered from 30,119 households, 34,979 women, and 4,973 men. Fact sheets for each district in Assam are also available separately.
