Primary Outcomes (explanation)
Assets: We are interested in four types of assets: moveable assets, savings, housing, and land. Amongst moveable assets we will examine the total number of livestock and farming assets. We will examine the amount of current savings of the households. We will also examine the ownership and quality of housing stock (e.g. building materials of walls, roof and floor) as well as the availability of electricity and sanitation facilities.
Consumption: We will examine impacts on food consumption as well as food and non-food expenditures. Specifically, food consumption measured as self-reported market value of self-produced food, as well as food purchased from the market in the 7 days before the survey data are collected. Non-food expenditures include transport, leisure, communication, personal care goods, school fees, household expenses (e.g. clothing and utensils), and social expenditures (e.g. baptism, funerals, donations and festivals).
Nutrition and Food Security: Here we will analyze the self-reported number of meals consumed by adults and children in the household. We will also look at the incidence of non-availability of any food in the household, the necessity to borrow food from friends and relatives and the need to reduce the number of meals eaten in a day and a measure of dietary diversity.
Agricultural outcomes: We are interested in total production per hectare, total expenditures on inputs and seeds and the number of crops cultivated.
Household income: We will examine variables related to household income from self-employment, own business, livestock sale, agricultural products sale, and other sources. We want to explore the different income sources of the household and the amount received.
Coping with shocks: We will examine if the household experiences at least one type of shock in the last 12 months and which type of shock. Within the possible shocks we include: drought, flood, death of a family member, and asset theft, loss or damage. We will also assess resilience from the shock.
Women’s outcomes & family wellbeing: Within this section we are interested in studying the following categories: happiness, economic satisfaction, and decision-making power.
We will also analyze the education of children 5 years and above. For this, we measure the school attendance of any/all children in current school year.
