They are located for quick reference through links in the text (electronic version) and at the more reader friendly

They are located for quick reference through links in the text (electronic version) and at the end of each chapter. Additionally, this more reader-friendly version features about 90 figures that clearly highlight trends, subnational patterns, and background characteristics. Large, colourful maps display breakdowns for provinces in Nepal.

The text has been simplified to highlight key points in bullets and to clearly identify indicator definitions in boxes. While the text and figures featured in each chapter highlight some of the most important findings from the tables, not every finding can be discussed or displayed graphically. For this reason, NDHS data users should be comfortable reading and interpreting tables.

The 2016 NDHS is a national sample survey that provides opt to date information on fertility levels, marriage, fertility preferences, awareness and use of family planning methods, child feeding practices, nutrition, adult and childhood mortality, awareness and attitudes regarding HIV/AIDS, women's empowerment and domestic violence. The 2016 NDHS also provides indicators relevant to the Nepal Health Sector Strategy (NHSS) – 2016-2021 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
