The Rwanda Population-Based Survey (PBS) provides a comprehensive assessment of the current status of agriculture and food security in almost the entire country, including all four provinces and all of rural Rwanda. This is an individual dataset with all women with a completed interview in Module H of the questionnaire.

A part of the 2014 round of public opinion surveys implemented by LAPOP, the Colombia survey was carried out between March 28st and May 5th of 2014. It is a follow-up of the national surveys since 1991. The 2014 survey was conducted by Vanderbilt University and the Universidad de los Andes and the Observatorio de la Democracia with the field work being carried out by the Centro Nacional de Consultoria (CNC). The 2014 AmericasBarometer received generous support from many sources, including USAID, UNDP, IADB, Vanderbilt U., Princeton U., Université Laval, U. of Notre Dame, among others.

In Cambodia, the Futures Group, a US-based International development firm is implementing the Health Information, Policy and Advocacy (HIPA) Project as part of health system strengthening to improve data completeness, quality, and usage of data by policy makers. The overall objective of this study was to assess the current data use and information needs from Health Management Information System (HMIS) to support evidence based decision making among various health managers and information needs of other external health and non-health stakeholders at both National and Sub-National levels. The study was designed to assess the current data use; identify data requirements and highlight any existing barriers and constraints to data access for the purposes of decision-making and performance monitoring.

The purpose of this survey is to determine the current knowledge and confidence of livestock owners in urban Managua, Nicaragua regarding safety and health procedures related to raising livestock within the city. This study seeks to describe the needs in order to inform future projects to develop curriculum to teach livestock safety and health in urban Nicaragua. This data asset was produced by The Ohio State University in cooperation with CIAT Nicaragua under a US Borlaug Fellows in Food Security grant.

In this manuscript, we synthesize current and legacy data from multiple studies to better understand the distribution and diversity of soil types and their properties in the Plateau physiographic region of the West Usamabara Mountains in Northeastern Tanzania. Analysis of soil properties and soil classification in the resulting dataset of 468 sites by land use, landscape position, and elevation revealed important relationships relevant for management and land use planning. These sites occurred across a range of landscape positions and an elevation gradient from 1040 – 2240 m.a.s.l. Soil diversity at the U.S. Order and WRB Reference Group levels was higher than expected, with five U.S. soil orders and seven WRB Reference Groups described in the dataset, and the highest soil diversity occurring at lower landscape positions. We found that soil organic carbon (SOC) and pH were two master variables that were correlated most other soil properties. Sites under cultivated land uses had the lowest topsoil soil organic carbon (SOC) concentrations, and SOC generally increased with increasing elevation. Mature forest and charcoal production areas did not significantly differ in their depth distributions of SOC. Valley soils had significantly lower surface SOC concentrations but higher exchangeable bases and pH values than all other landscape positions. Soil pH decreased by an average of 3.5 units across the entire elevation gradient and decreased by 1 unit with elevation even after SOC, land use and landscape position were included in multiple regression models. Local pedotransfer functions were developed to assist with the use of pH, clay and SOC as proxies for more difficult to measure soil properties such as cation exchange capacity (CEC) and base saturation (B.S.), bulk density and total phosphorus. Phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) were identified as the most likely limiting nutrients in West Usambaran plateau soils in general. This information is critical for sustainable land management which will be applicable to the soils of other mountain complexes in the Eastern Arc chain.

This dataset contains information about cost and quantity of products derived from the farm’s livestock. The table can be combined with other datasets in this data asset using the 'hhid' column. The purpose of collecting these data was to examine farm expansion and labor markets in rural Tanzania. Data were collected in 8 rural districts of Tanzania: Mvomero, Kilombero, Njombe, Kiteto, Magu, Moshi Rural, Mkuranga and Liwale. The data were collected through the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy (FSP).
Feed The Future Interim Population-Based Assessment of Cambodia, Modules H-I, Anthropometry and Food Consumed by Children: Section 2data.usaid.gov | Last Updated 2018-11-11T19:25:58.000Z
In the process of migrating data to the current DDL platform, datasets with a large number of variables required splitting into multiple spreadsheets. They should be reassembled by the user to understand the data fully. This is the second spreadsheet of three in the Feed The Future Interim Population-Based Assessment of Cambodia, Modules H-I, Anthropometry and Food Consumed by Children.
Feed The Future Interim Population-Based Assessment of Cambodia, Module E1-05, Expenditures on Food Actually Consumed During the Last Weekdata.usaid.gov | Last Updated 2018-11-11T19:26:41.000Z
This dataset records the expenditures for that part of food purchased on specific foods actually consumed by the household during the 7 days before the survey from the first interim assessment of Feed the Future's population-based indicaors for the ZOI in Cambodia. It has 1019 rows and 300 columns. The ZOI is the Pursat, Battambang, Kampong Thom, and Siem Reap Provinces. The sampling design called for a two-stage cluster sample. In the first stage, 84 villages were selected; in the second stage, households were selected within each sampled village. The sampling of villages was stratified by province, with the number of villages in each stratum proportional to the population in the stratum and with villages selected with probability proportional to size, based on the 2013 Commune Database. The data is split into survey modules. Modules A through C includes location information, informed consent, and the household roster. Module D includes household characteristics. Module E is the expenditures module broken up into 8 different parts. Modules F and G include the hunger scale data and WEIA index data. Data in modules H and I include mother and child dietary diversity.
