Abstract

Public Expenditure Tracking Surveys (PETS) and Quantitative Service Delivery Surveys (QSDS) have become important tools for analyzing service delivery and public expenditures. The objective of this PETS/QSDS Guidebook is to assist practitioners in using these instruments and explaining to those who are considering undertaking PETS/QSDS why and how to use these tools. The PETS/QSDS Guidebook is intended to help improve the quality and comparability of survey results by providing guidance and recommendations for designing and implementing these micro-level surveys and providing links to related resources and reports/documents, including standardized survey instruments and indicators.
