This Working Paper describes the results of the Woodfuel Survey Module field test, which was implemented in Lesotho in September 2017.
Technical Reports & Working Papers
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.
The objective of the research topic “SUST-3, Data Collection Methods for Agri-environmental Indicators” is to provide a framework for agricultural sustainability indicators and related statistical definitions, and measurements tools covering the economic, social and environmental dimensions.
In this paper, overviews of the three pilots are given, with discussions on the methodologies, results and lessons learned related to these endeavours.
This article investigates the possibility of structuring data from different websites through web scraping techniques.
This pilot test protocol is a synthesis of initial “brainstorming” of desktop analysis options, discussions with FAO, and revisions to preliminary ideas based on recommendations received at the Expert Meeting in Rome (May, 2017).
The goals of this Technical Report are to introduce a revised version of the short form and the long form of the WSM; to describe the proposed methodology to incorporate the WSM into existing surveys; and to describe the indicators of consumption and production of woodfuel that can be derived from the data collected.
This report introduces the problem of reconciling agricultural census and survey data by exploring methods to recalculate the survey weights, focusing on how to combine information from agricultural censuses.
The aim of this research topic is to find methods to improve the collection, management and use of administrative data for the production of agricultural statistics in developing countries. This technical report includes a country-tested methodology.
