Surveys on Agriculture (ISA) program and was revised in 2010 to include a panel component (GHS-Panel). The objectives of the study include the development of an innovative model for collecting agricultural data, inter-institutional collaboration,
and comprehensive analysis of welfare indicators
and socio-economic characteristics. Produced in partnership with the World Bank LSMS team, this report presents findings from the second wave of the GHS-Panel, which was implemented in 2012–2013.

gender dimensions in nigerian agriculture - a policy brief

This policy brief, the first in a series of two, investigates the role of women in Nigerian agriculture using the first dataset to capture a comprehensive picture of agriculture across the nation of Nigeria. It finds that women are heavily involved in the production of both staple (food) crops and cash crops, the agricultural value chain, and livestock production. However, women earn and produce much less than men, and have limited access to land, inputs, labor, and extension services.
