NEW - The data from the 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012, and 2013-14 National Panel Surveys are now available for downloading free of charge.

Overview

The LSMS-ISA project is supporting the design and implementation of the Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS), with a focus on expanding the agricultural content of the UNPS as well as ensuring comparability with other surveys being carried out under the LSMS-ISA project in Sub-Saharan Africa. The emphasis is to ensure that information on agriculture and livestock, and data on food and nutrition security inter alia, are mainstreamed into the UNPS, and that the quality and relevance of these data is further improved and made sustainable over time. The UNPS is implemented on an annual basis; the first round of data collection ran from September 2009 through August 2010. The current work plan spans a period of 5 years, with co-funding from the Dutch Government for the first round of data collection and infrastructure-related expenditures.

Management

The UNPS is implemented by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBoS) through the Division for Socioeconomic Surveys. The LSMS team is responsible for the management and technical design of the project, as well as for the provision of technical assistance and the support of analytical work resulting from the collected data.

Design

Sampling and Survey Design

The UNPS sample is approximately 3,200 households, all of whom had been previously interviewed as part of the 2005/2006 Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS). The sample also includes a randomly-selected share of split-off households that were formed after the 2005/2006 UNHS. The UNPS is representative at the national, urban/rural and main regional levels (North, East, West and Central regions). The initial sample was visited for two consecutive years (2009/10 and 2010/11). Going forward, parts of the sample will be replaced by new households extracted from the updated sample frames developed by the UBoS from the upcoming 2012 Population and Housing Census.

Areas of all owned and/or cultivated agricultural plots were measured via GPS and farmer-supplied area estimates have been validated. Crop cards were used to better quantify the production of continuously harvested as well as staple crops.

Implementation

Field Work Implementation

The UNPS interviews each household twice each year with visits that are six months apart to reduce recall. For the first round of data collection, the field work was implemented with mobile teams and concurrent data entry, developed in CSPro. The second round of data collection in 2010/2011 was implemented via a computer-assisted interview application (CAPI) on ultra-mobile personal computers (UMPCs).

Dissemination

Data Documentation and Dissemination

All data generated are made publicly available (fully cleaned and with complete documentation) within twelve months of completion of each wave of data collection. The UNPS data are disseminated via the LSMS and UBoS websites.

The data from the 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012, and 2013-14 National Panel Surveys are now available for downloading free of charge.
