UGANDA NATIONAL PANEL SURVEY PROGRAM DECEMBER 2013 By James Muwonge, Uganda Bureau of Statistics Uganda Bureau of Statistics
Overview Background Objectives of the survey Coverage Sampling design Modules to be covered Next steps
Background The National Development Plan (NDP) provides the framework for monitoring development outcomes in Uganda. Over the last decade, remarkable achievements have been made in the economic and social sectors (For example, Growth rate of GDP of over 5% per annum, Inflation rate below 10 % per annum, among other accomplishments). However, there have also been challenges in some sectors like agriculture and little progress has been made.
Background Cont’d Sustaining the successes made and supporting the hitherto slow sectors requires that the NDP focuses on results as a key ingredient and data and information plays a major role in informing policy direction. The Uganda National Panel Survey programme (UNPS) will meet this demand by: Providing annual outcome measurement
Background cont’d Supporting analysis to feed into decision making Providing opportunities for learning through Lessons learnt from large scale interventions Accommodating impact evaluation
Background cont’d UNPS is part of: UBOS’ Long term Census and Survey Plan covering a 10 year period which in turn is part of: the Plan for National Statistical Development which provides a framework for statistical improvement across Ministries, Departments and Agencies The UNPS compliments rather than replace other data collection efforts (e.g UNHS, UDHS, Service delivery Surveys)
Objectives of the survey To provide information to monitor the NDP and other programmes (eg PMA) and feed into the Government Annual Performance Review GAGR) Provide high quality nationally representative annual data on: Income dynamics at household level Service delivery Consumption expenditure to monitor poverty Provide estimates of production for some selected crops
Objectives of the survey (cont’d) Provide a framework for policy oriented analysis and capacity building Facilitate randomised impact evaluations of interventions
The Panel survey programme The UNPS started in 2009 and was the first independent panel household survey to be undertaken in Uganda. The panel is drawn from the 2005/06 UNHS The series of annual panel surveys that will span a period of 5-10 years First Panel survey component was in 1999/2000 Uganda National Household Survey
Coverage The Panel Survey is a nation-wide survey covering four modules namely, socioeconomic, agriculture, market and community/facility module
Sampling design and sample selection About 3,220 households from 322 Enumeration Areas (EAs), selected initially from the 7,426 households visited by the UNHS 2005-06.
Sample design Cont’d: In each EA, the UNPS visits all the UNHS05/06 households that can be found, as well as those split-offs that can be tracked with the resources available The UNPS sub sample is distributed proportionately across different strata
Sampling design Cont’d The initial sample was maintained for three consecutive years (2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/2012). Thereafter, one third of the sample was replaced by new households using the frame developed for the 2014 Population and Housing Census..
Sampling design Cont’d The UNPS interviews each household twice each year, in visits six months apart.
Modules of the UNPS The socio-economic module The Agricultural module The community/facility module Market/Price module
Socio-economic module Administered through the Socio-Economic Survey Questionnaire Household Roster (to cover the characteristics of household members e.g. Names of Household all members, Sex, Age, Relationship to household head Marital Status Residential Status
Socio-economic module Cont’d Education characteristics Health status and disability of household members Child Nutrition and health Contraceptives (knowledge and use ) Economic activities of household members
Socio-economic module Cont’d Housing conditions Income of households Consumption Expenditure Food security
Agriculture Questionnaire Current land holdings Production Labour and non labour inputs Crop plot area and shocks Livestock ownership and products
Agriculture Cont’d Fishing Extension services Marketing services and constraints to marketing Marketing services and constraints to marketing
Facility/community questionnaire Community infrastructure Community facilities (education, health etc) Other community characteristics
Price questionnaire A collection of prices in various markets with their corresponding measurements To provide a list of items to be used in future surveys as references
Data entry Computer assisted personal interview used during interview
Conclusion Provides outcomes indicators on an annual basis Complements other data collection efforts A basis for trying out new approaches
