Abstract

The purpose of this series of country briefs is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of agricultural characteristics integrat- ed with socioeconomic variables across countries. In the Uganda Agricultural Snapshot, we illustrate the state of agriculture in Uganda with reference to both household characteristics and the national context. Graphs and tables are generated using data from the Uganda National Panel Survey (NPS) 2009/2010. Income and expenditure variables, including expenditure deciles and income shares, are based on the expenditure and income aggregates constructed by HarvestChoice and the Rural Income Generating Activities (RIGA) team at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
The 2009/2010 NPS is a multi-topic survey conducted over a twelve-month period on a nationally representative sample. It took place in two visits to accommodate seasonality in agricultural activity and consumption and was sampled in households from 322 of the 783 enumeration areas (EAs) of the Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS) 2005/2006. Data from the NPS are representative at the level of the following strata: 1) Kampala, 2) other urban areas, 3) central rural areas, 4) eastern rural areas, 5) western rural areas, and 6) northern rural areas. In each of these strata, EAs from the 2005/2006 UNHS were selected with equal probability, apart from rural areas of ten districts which were oversampled in the 2005/2006 UNHS.
