The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, in collaboration with the Registrar General of India (RGI), had launched an Annual Health Survey (AHS) in the erstwhile Empowered Action Group States (Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa and Rajasthan and Assam). AHS provides District-wise data on various parameters i.e. Sample Particulars, Household Characteristics, Sex Ratio, Effective Literacy Rate, Marriage, Schooling Status, Work Status, Disability, Injury, Acute Illness, Chronic Illness, Fertility, Abortion, Family Planning Practices, Unmet Need for Family Planning, Ante Natal Care, Delivery Care, Post Natal Care, Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY), Immunization, Vitamin A & Iron Supplement and Birth Weight, Childhood Diseases, Breastfeeding and Supplementation, Birth Registration, Awareness and Confidence Interval (95%) for some important Indicators . The aim of the survey was to provide feedback on the impact of the schemes under NHM in reduction of Total Fertility Rate (TFR), Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) at the district level and the Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) at the regional level by estimating these rates on an annual basis for around 284 districts in these States
