Agriculture: Analysis of the NIDS Wave 1 Dataset Discussion Paper no. 6 Agriculture: Analysis of the NIDS Wave 1 Dataset Discussion Paper no. 6 HOT

In this discussion paper, we will first discuss the potential role that can be played by agricultural production and by government support for this sector. We will then note methodological decisions concerning weighting and the selection of variables that have been used. We then go onto discuss data contained in the Adult Questionnaire which can be used to show the demographic profile of those who are employed in informal or subsistence agriculture. The information in the household questionnaire is then discussed and these data are combined in a preliminary analysis of the outcomes from agricultural production on household well-being. We end by noting some data quality concerns and make suggestions for amendments to the Wave 2 questionnaire.
