NEW - The data from the Enquête Nationale sur les Conditions de Vie des Ménages et l’Agriculture de 2011 and the Enquête Nationale sur les Conditions de Vie des Ménages et l’Agriculture de 2014 are available for downloading free of charge.

Overview

The LSMS-ISA project is supporting the design and implementation of the Niger Enquête Nationale sur les Conditions de Vie des Ménages et l’Agriculture (ECVM/A), also known as the National Household Living Conditions and Agriculture Survey. The expanded focus consists of the development of an agriculture module for the household survey as well as ensuring that the information on agriculture and livestock will be mainstreamed into future surveys. The first survey was done in 2011 and the second survey was done in 2014.

Management

The ECVM/A is implemented by the Niger Institut National de la Statistique (INS). The LSMS team is responsible for the management and technical design of the project, as well as for the provision of technical assistance and the support of analytical work resulting from the collected data.

Design

Sampling and Survey Design

The sample for the ECVM/A-2011 includes approximately 4,000 households in 270 Zones de Dénombrement (ZD). The sample is nationally representative, as well as representative of Niamey, Other Urban and Rural. Within the rural ZDs, the sample is also representative of three ecological zones - agricultural zones, agro-pastoral zones, and pastoral zones.

Households visited in 2011 were re-visited in 2014. Households and individuals who moved after the 2011 survey were tracked. When the entire household moved within Niger, the household was found and re-interviewed in 2014. When individuals from the household moved, one individual per household was selected to follow.

Implementation

Field Work Implementation

The field work for each survey was conducted in two visits to the survey households. The first visit was made after the planting season (July - September).The second visit was made after the harvest season (November – January ). The field work was implemented by mobile teams with a dedicated data entry operator integrated into each team for concurrent data entry through an application developed in CSPro. Field teams consisted of one supervisor, three enumerators, and one data entry operator.
