Niger National Survey on Living Conditions and Agriculture 2011

Short Name: 
Niger 2011 ECVM/A 

The National Survey on Living Conditions and Agriculture 2011 (Enquête National sur les Conditions de Vie des Ménages et Agriculture - ECVM/A) is an integrated multi-topic household survey done for the purpose of evaluating poverty and living conditions in Niger. This type of survey is regularly done in Niger. This survey was implemented by the National Institute of Statistics (Institut National de la Statistique -INS) with technical and financial assistance from the World Bank. Niger is part of the Living Standards Measurement Study – Integrated Surveys on Agriculture (LSMS-ISA) program. This program has developed a household level survey a view to enhancing our knowledge of agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa, in particular, its role in poverty reduction and the techniques for promoting efficiency and innovation in this sector. The ECVM/A involves two visits, which means that each household is visited twice. The first visit takes place during the planting season. The second visit takes place during the harvest season. The household and agriculture/livestock, as well as the community/price questionnaire are administered during the first visit. During the second visit, only the household and agriculture/livestock questionnaires are administered. Households will be re-interviewed in 2014.
