As the rents have so far been controlled, the rent index is measured on a relatively small sample of dwellings. The rent level depends on the size of the municipality where dwellings are located. (...) The weights represent the structure of the number of rented dwellings by municipality size. The rent paid for cooperative dwellings is calculated by weighting the regional average rents by the regional structure of cooperative dwellings. Imputed rents for owner occupied housing are based on average rent levels for cooperataive dwellings weighted by the structure of owned dwellings.

DHS data structure and data files Methodology and Tools for Supporting the Formulation of Evidence-based Policies in Response to the Challenge of Population Ageing in Malawi By Jesman Chintsanya, PhD Department of Population Studies, Chancellor College, University of Malawi 19-21 July 2016, Lilongwe, Malawi Outline • Introduction • Background • Methodology • Findings • Conclusion • Recommendations Introduction • Projected population 16.8 million (NSO, 2010) • TFR 5.0 children per woman (MDG Endline Survey, 2014) • Rapid population growth (2.8%) per annum (NS0, 2010) • HIV prevalence has remained stable, 10% (NSO, 2011) • Improvements in ART • Improvements in life expectancy • Proportion of persons aged 60+ will increase from 4.9% (2015) to 7.6% (2050), (United Nations, 2015). • In absolute terms this equates to 0.85 million to 3.3 million persons Need for Data and Statistics on Order Persons • The increase in proportion of older persons has both opportunities and challenges • Older people have the knowledge and skills which they can use to help families or communities deal with different challenges • Population of older persons steadily increases in the country, the social, economic and cultural challenges associated with ageing populations are likely to multiply • Hence, UNDESA and Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Welfare (Department of Disability and Elderly Affairs), commissioned a study to investigate available data and statistics on older persons that can inform socio-economic planning. Study Objectives • To assess the status of empirical data on older persons for supporting the formulation of evidence-based policies in response to the challenge of population ageing in Malawi • Present evidence of available data on older persons, • Identify existing gaps and, • Make recommendations on improving the data situation. Study Methods Document review • The Constitution of the Republic of Malawi, • National Pensions Act, • National Policy for Older Persons (draft), • National Social Support Policy, and Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS) II. • The National Statistical Act • National Commission on Science and Technology (NCST) research and ethics guidelines Database search • Search from different producers, however, NSO was the main source • collection instruments were closely studied to obtain an idea of the type of data collected by the data producers in the country Electronic/internet literature search • A search engine of Google was conducted to identify publications on older persons which could not be sourced using the above two study methods. (...) Housing Conditions  The censuses, and all major surveys (MDHS, IHS, WMS) collect information on housing and household characteristics  Question asked include: type of household; type of dwelling structure; and tenure of the dwelling structure  The 2014 WMS asked information on the occupancy tenure to the arrangements under which the household resides in a dwelling.
