Household Survey (Data Portrait - Admin 2 - GADM - 1998-2013)

Household surveys:

Subnational information from different available household surveys of farmers and smallholders in developing and emerging countries.

Household data provides an overview on farmer households livelihoods, decisions, constraints, among other dimensions. One of the main purposes of this suite of data is to provide farmer information disaggregated at different subnational levels, as well as georeferenced information, when available.

The surveys available in this section provide information divided in ten main dimensions: Production, Consumption, Income, Capital, Inputs, Access to markets, Labor, Technology adoption, Infrastructure, and Social.

Currently available is the Data Portrait of Small Family Farms, more will be added.

Data Portrait:

The Data Portrait of Small Family Farms is a project developed by FAO with the objective to set the ground for a standardized definition of smallholders across countries as well as provide consistent measures of inputs, production, sociodemographic characteristics of smallholder farmers across the world. It generates an image on how small family farmers in developing and emerging countries live their lives, putting in numbers the constraints they face, and the choices they make so that policies can be informed by evidence to meet the challenge of agricultural development.

The Data Portrait of Small Family Farms makes use of household surveys developed by national statistical offices in conjunction with the World Bank as part of its Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS).

The Data Portrait of Small Family Farms collected data for 19 countries across the world, and for some of them data was reported for more than one round, resulting in a total of 29 surveys. The following table shows the sources of the data. Country and year available information is also presented. Find the link to the table here
