While the title of this article is "Demographic and Health Surveys", the content is about a specific project called MEASURE DHS. While the two are related, they are not identical. Also, much of the content seems to have been simply pasted from the MEASURE DHS website: A promotional tone is obvious in the first sentence that claims that the project has "earned a worldwide reputation for collecting and disseminating accurate, nationally representative data on health and population in developing countries" without quoting a reference. In general, the article has few references and, more importantly, seems to have no or almost no independent reference. While the subject of the article seems notable, the current tone does not comply with a Neutral point of view and some claims are not verifiable. The article could probably be shortened substantially, if information pasted from the MEASURE DHS would be taken out. Please improve the article by shortening it, adding independent references and removing the promotional undertone.--Mschiffler (talk) 22:09, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
