The Measuring Impact of Stabilization Initiatives (MISTI) project was awarded to Management Systems International (MSI) on March 14, 2012 and concluded on September 30, 2015.USAID/Afghanistan’s MISTI ranks as the largest and most comprehensive trends analysis and impact evaluation of stabilization interventions that the U.S. Government has ever undertaken. It is also the only one to date subjected to peer review; in addition, three peer review papers for publication in leading journals and a presentation for the 2015 annual conference of the American Evaluation Association are in preparation. This MISTI survey data file contains the combined response data from five semi-annual iterations or “waves” of surveys conducted from September 2012 through November 2014 to determine whether USAID project activities caused changes in stability and resilience at the district and village levels.At the start, MISTI compiled a baseline stabilization and impact evaluation and survey. For the five waves of surveys, each of which was conducted over several months, a total of 190,264 individual interviews were undertaken in 5,093 different villages across 130 districts of the 23 provinces where stabilization initiatives were being implemented or considered. These data were compiled into one file to facilitate easy access for international development practitioners, researchers and other interested parties in accordance with the USAID’s Open Data Policy. As part of this process, village names and locations have been replaced with unique village identifiers to ensure the safety of Afghan stakeholders. This preserves a researcher's ability to access granular data and see trends at the village-level, but prevents data consumers from attributing responses to a named Afghan village.The datasets supplied here are in CSV format. In addition to the response-level dataset (MISTI_Survey_Data), we are providing a village-level dataset (MISTI_Village_Data). Each row of this dataset contains data from one unique village surveyed by MISTI in Waves 1-5. The dataset is in wide format. Each variable is identified by a wave number and a proximity to the village. Data include village demographic characteristics, violent incident counts, stabilization and NSP project activities, and perception indicators from individual survey interviews aggregated to the village mean. These data were analyzed for the MISTI impact evaluation of USAID stabilization programming in Afghanistan, 2012-2014.Codebooks are supplied for each dataset as is the final survey instrument used. By way of supplement, we also provide the original SPSS files, which may speed analysis for certain researchers.

Feed the Future initiative in Malawi is committed to improving food security and nutrition in farming households while reducing rural poverty through an agriculture-led, integrated economic growth, nutrition, and natural resource management strategy. The goal of the impact evaluation is to determine whether integrating nutrition interventions alongside agricultural value chain interventions will contribute to a greater reduction in malnutrition among children under 3 years of age, compared to nutrition improvements anticipated from stand-alone value chain activities. The main objectives are to enable USAID missions to meet the performance monitoring requirements of Feed the Future and maximize the use and benefits of data collected; provide high-quality empirical evidence to inform program design and investment decisions that will promote sustainable food security; ensure timely availability of highquality data for use in monitoring performance and evaluating impacts of the Feed the Future initiative; and facilitate accountability and learning about which Feed the Future interventions work best, under what conditions, and at what cost.
Baseline Study of Food for Peace Title II Development Food Assistance Program in Karamoja, Uganda--Sampling Weightsdata.usaid.gov | Last Updated 2018-11-13T05:02:49.000Z
This dataset describes the sampling scheme used in the Baseline Study of Food for Peace Title II Development Food Assistance Program in Karamoja, Uganda. It has 34 columns and 4,766 rows. In fiscal year 2012, USAID's Office of Food for Peace (FFP) awarded funding to private voluntary organizations (PVOs) to design and implement a multi-year Title II development food assistance program in Uganda. The main purpose of the Title II program is to improve long-term food security of chronically food insecure population in the target regions. FFP contracted a firm, ICF International to conduct a baseline study in targeted areas of the country prior to the start of the new program. The purpose of the study was to assess the current status of key indicators, have a better understanding of prevailing conditions and perceptions of the population in the implementation areas, and serve as a point of comparison for future final evaluations. Results would also be used to further refine program targeting and, where possible, to understand the relationship between variables to inform program design. The study was conducted in 2013, while FFP expects to conduct final evaluations as close as possible to the end of the program five years later. The data asset is comprised of six datasets: 1) a description of all members of the households surveyed, 2) data on maternal health and sanitation practices, 3) data about the children in the household, 4) data describing the agricultural practices of the household, 5) data describing the food consumption of the household (broken into 4 smaller spreadsheets), and 6) and a description of the weights that should be applied during the analysis of the other datasets.
