The Policy and Service Satisfaction Survey (PSSS) investigates public knowledge and perceptions of the Government of Tanzania’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) and other policy initiatives. PSSS also documents people’s views on the availability, quality and cost of basic social and economic services under PRS. PSSS surveyed 3,002 households in seven Tanzanian mainland regions. In total, 665 households were sampled in Dar es Salaam urban wards, 467 in urban wards in the other six regions, and 1,870 households in rural wards. The survey took place in August-September 2003. Regions were sampled using the poverty profiles from the Poverty and Human Development Report 2002. Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro and Mbeya Regions were chosen from the top of the rankings, Singida and Mara from the middle, and Rukwa and Lindi from the bottom. This report summarises the main PSSS results from the household survey and focus groups held in these research sites. The information presented is disaggregated by locality - Dar es Salaam, other towns and rural areas – and by the sex of head of household. The report is descriptive. Further analysis will try to explain the perceptions and opinions of respondents on the basis of the distribution of welfare and poverty levels between households.
