Objectifs  : The objective was to develop enhanced methods of household survey sampling design in order to improve socioeconomic and livelihood data collected from pastoralist populations, with a particular emphasis on livestock data.

Descriptif  : This project utilized a Random Geographic Cluster Survey (RGCS) design, which is commonly used in agricultural surveys, to sample pastoralist populations in the Afar region in eastern Ethiopia. The design selected a series of points using available GIS information, and then created clusters of a given radius around each point. Following a series of pilot tests, the survey was implemented between June and August 2012 using hand-held GPS devices.

The main implication of this project for future research is that despite the fact that there are serious limitations, an RGCS design can be implemented with relatively simple equipment and limited technical capacity. This is important because many other alternative sampling methods require repeated trips to the field or advanced knowledge of statistics by enumerators to be successfully implemented. This method provides an important step forward in the application of an RGCS design to household or individual studies.
