Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with the heads of a representative sample of the target households:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: Can you please tell me all the crops that your household grew during the last season? (keep probing: “What other crops did you grow?”)
A1: pre-define all types of crops that the farmers might grow (multiple answers possible) + include option “did not grow any crops”
Count how many types of promoted crops each respondent’s household grew during the last season.
To calculate the indicator’s value:
- Divide the number of respondents whose households during the last season grew at least two of the promoted types of crops by the total number of respondents
- Multiply the resulting number by 100 to convert it to a percentage
- Multiply the percentage by the total number of the target households
- The resulting number is the “number of target households who grew at least two of the promoted types of crops during the last season”
See example: 200 surveyed households grew at least two of the promoted types of crops divided by a total of 400 surveyed households equals 0.5. This multiplied by 100 equals 50%. If the total number of the target households is 10,000, then 50% out of 10,000 is 5,000 households growing at least two of the promoted types of crops.
