This final technical report presents guidance for constructing a Master Sampling Frame (MSF) to use for surveys of fisheries or aquaculture.
Technical Reports & Working Papers
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.
This Working Paper describes the results of the Woodfuel Survey Module field test, which was implemented in Lesotho in September 2017.
The Handbook on Master Sampling Frames was prepared by a core team of experts from several countries that illustrate their diverse experiences in building and using sampling frames for agriculture surveys.
This technical report on Master Sampling Frames describes the field experiments conducted in Nepal.
A pilot survey was conducted in Ghana from October 2016 to March 2017, testing a survey-based approach to measure harvest and post-harvest losses on the farm. This document describes the methodological approach that was tested and subsequently adopted.
In this technical report, the literature search is linked to the pilot project by identifying salient issues and gaps in surveys of fisheries and aquaculture. Also discussed in the report are ways in which various methods for conducting surveys of fisheries and aquaculture deal with different aspects of these challenges.
