This technical report on Agricultural Master Sampling Frames: Lessons learned from international field experiments and case studies compiles results from a series of experiments carried out by the Global Strategy to improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics (GSARS) in 2016 and 2017, in Brazil, Nepal and Rwanda.
Technical Reports & Working Papers
The present document presents two case-studies, to illustrate the process of compilation of productivity indicators: i) the calculation of labour productivity based on data collected at farm-level, that is based on a pilot survey in Zambia, and ii) the construction of aggregate and country-level information on agricultural productivity from aggregate time-series.
The Technical Report aims to develop an international definition of rural areas and indicators of rural development. This summary report pilot tests were analytical desktop assessments carried out in seven countries with the cooperation of the National Statistical Offices (Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, France, Malaysia, Pakistan and the United States of America).
This technical report presents the results of a field test implemented in Costa Rica as part of the research activities planned within the frame of GSARS research line “SUST-3: Data collection methods for agri-environmental indicators”.
This technical report presents different dimensions of employment and underemployment within agricultural households in three communities in Kenya.
This final technical report presents guidance for constructing a Master Sampling Frame (MSF) to use for surveys of fisheries or aquaculture.
The overall goal of the study is to test the methodology and the approach developed by the Agriculture Market Information System (AMIS) project, which outlined the use of available data to estimate certain critical variables on food balance sheets, especially Carry-in Stocks (also called Carry-over stocks), and Production.
The objective of this technical report is to serve as the foundation for developing a generalized cost-effective methodology to collect information on DW and youth employment in agriculture.
This Technical Report aims to present the methodology implemented for the spatial delimitation and production of statistics of rural areas and the results obtained.
This Working Paper describes the results of the Woodfuel Pilot Survey (EPICOMAD), which was implemented in Ecuador in November 2017 as part of the activities designed to test the Woodfuel Survey Module.
The purpose of this compendium, developed by the Asian Development Bank, is to compare agricultural statistics generated from sample surveys to those from administrative records.
This Working Paper describes the results of the cognitive test, which was implemented in Ecuador in September 2017, as part of the previous activities designed to test the Woodfuel Survey Module.
