National NCD risk factor survey (WHO-STEP survey) 2019, Nepal-Nepali & English Version

  • National NCD risk factor survey (WHO-STEP survey) 2019, Nepal

    The national noncommunicable disease (NCD) risk factor survey (WHO-STEP survey) in Nepal was carried out from February to May 2019. It was a population-based household survey of adults aged 15-69 years. A multistage cluster sample design was used to produce representative data for that age range in Nepal. A total of 5593 adults participated in the survey. The overall response rate was 86.4%. A repeat survey is planned for 2024.
    The survey collected data on socio-demographic characteristics and on four major behavioral risk factors (tobacco, alcohol, diet, physical activity) and four physiological risk factors (overweight/obesity, raised blood pressure, raised blood sugar and cholesterol levels). This fact sheet summarizes the main tobacco indicators related to consumption patterns and tobacco policy. Data from periodic STEPS surveys can facilitate evaluation of existing tobacco-control policies and programs and track change over time.
