The visualization above is created using nationally reprsentative data from the World Bank’s Living Standards Measurement Study – Integrated Surveys on Agriculture (LSMS-ISA). This is a publicly available household panel survey dataset for seven countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The survey includes linked agricultural, livestock, household, and community level modules that provide information on a variety of topics including crops, farming practices, livestock, income sources, and socio-demographics. Specifically it displays cleaned data from one panel of the Tanzania National Panel Survey (Year 4, 2014-2015). The code used to generate the variables and estimates is available in a public GitHub repository. The estimates are available through EPAR's agricultural database. This visualization allows users to look at one particular custom definition in greater depth. This visualization looks at the AGRA definitions in greater depth.
