The 2020 Round of Panel Data Collection for Agriculture, Rural Development and Poverty Reduction
CDRI has collected and maintained a panel data of households in rural Cambodia. The work started in 1996-97 when CDRI conducted a benchmark survey of three villages—Prek Khmeng, Babaong and Trapeang Prey. Data collection has been regular (one every three years) surveying 1,183 sample households in 11 rural villages, representing the four geographical locations (Mekong Plain, Tonle Sap, Mountainous and Coastal). Data can be used for rural poverty monitoring and research analyses.
The objective is to provide further inside for the
upcoming Poverty Assessment (PA) which aims to produce a consistent poverty and
inequality profile in Cambodia using up-to-date household survey data (2019/20
CSES) in order to support the development and implementation of policies to
reduce poverty and boost shared prosperity.
