Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with the heads of a representative sample of the target households:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTION (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Introduction: In this survey, we are asking people about their household income. We do not want to know the specific amounts, we just want to understand whether people’s income has changed in the past [specify the period]. The information you tell me is confidential and I will not share it with people living in this area. May I proceed with the interview?
Q1: If you compare your household’s existing financial income with the income the household had [specify the time before you provided assistance – e.g. a year ago], would you say that the household income has increased, decreased, or remained the same?
A1 select one of the following:
3) remained the same
4) does not know
5) does not want to say
(ask the following question only if the previous answer is “increased”)
Q2: In your opinion, what were all the main reasons why your household managed to increase its income? (keep probing: “Were there any other reasons?”)
A2 select one of the following:
1) project assistance was mentioned
2) project assistance was NOT mentioned
To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of people who reported increasing their income as a result of the project assistance by the total number of interviewed respondents (exclude those who refused or were not able to answer). Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
