Uganda - National Panel Survey 2005-2009

Primary tabs

Uganda has experienced strong economic growth over the past two decades and has made great strides towards improving the quality of life and access to services. In order to continue to promote pro-poor economic growth, the Government of Uganda (GoU) developed the National Development Plan (NDP) and a Joint Budget Support strategy as part of the implementation of the National Development Strategy (NDS). Uganda recognizes the need for adequate data collection to effectively monitor outcomes of the National Development Strategy (NDS). For this purpose, the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) implemented the Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS) program, with financial and technical support from the Government of Netherlands, and the World Bank Living Standards Measurement Study - Integrated Surveys on Agriculture (LSMS-ISA) project. The 2005-2009/10 Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS) is the first "panel" survey done by the LSMS group. The households included were chosen from the 2005-06 Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS). The sample One of the primary uses of the UNPS is to inform policymaking in advance of the Budget, through descriptive reports that are made ready in time for the initial work on sector budget framework papers. Survey Objectives The UNPS aimed at producing annual estimates of outcomes and output in the key policy areas and at providing a platform for the experimentation and assessment of national policies and programs. Explicitly, the objectives of the UNPS include: The UNPS aims at producing annual estimates in key policy areas and at providing a platform for experimenting with and assessing of national policies and programs. Explicitly, the objectives of the UNPS include: 1. To provide information required for monitoring the National Development Strategy, of major programs such as National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS) and General Budget Support, and also to provide information to the compilation of the National Accounts (e.g. agricultural production). 2. To provide high quality nationally representative information on income dynamics at the household level and provide annual information on service delivery and consumption expenditure estimates to monitor poverty and service outcomes in interim years of other national survey efforts, such as the Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS), Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS) and National Service Delivery Surveys (NSDS). 3. To provide a framework for low-cost experimentation with different policy interventions to e.g. reduce teacher absenteeism, improve ante- and post-natal care, or assessing the effect of agricultural input subsidies. 4. To provide a framework for policy-oriented analysis and capacity building substantiated with the UGDR and support to other research which will feed into the Annual Policy Implementation Review. 5. To facilitate randomized impact evaluations of interventions whose effects cannot currently be readily assessed through the existing system of national household surveys.

The 2005-2009/10 Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS) is the first multi-topic panel household survey conducted in Uganda. The UNPS is carried out annually, over a twelve-month period on a nationally representative sample of households.
Primary Investigator Name, Affiliation: 
Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS); Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development
Sampling Procedure: 
Survey Design The UNPS is carried out annually, over a twelve-month period on a nationally representative sample of households, for the purpose of accommodating the seasonality associated with the composition of and expenditures on consumption. The survey is conducted in two visits in order to better capture agricultural outcomes associated with the two cropping seasons of the country. The UNPS will therefore interview each household twice each year, in visits six months apart. Starting in 2005-09/10, the UNPS has been set out to track and re-interview 3,123 households that were distributed over 322 enumeration areas (EAs), selected out of the 783 EAs that had been visited by the Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS) in 2005-06. The UNPS EAs covered all 34 EAs visited by the UNHS 2005-06 in Kampala District, and 72 EAs (58 rural and 14 urban) in each of the (i) Central Region with the exception of Kampala District, (ii) Eastern Region, (iii) Western Region, and (iv) Northern Region. Within each stratum, the UNPS EAs were selected from the UNHS 2005-06 EAs with equal probability, and with implicit stratification by urban/rural and district (in this order), except for the rural portions of the ten districts that were oversampled by the UNHS 2005-06. In these districts, the probabilities were deflated, to bring them back to the levels originally intended. Since IDP camps are now mostly unoccupied, the extra EAs in IDP camps are not a part of the UNPS subsample. This allocation strives for reasonably reliable estimates for the rural portion of each region, and for the set of urban areas out of Kampala as a whole, as well as the best possible estimates for Kampala that can be expected from a subsample of the UNHS 2005-06. Therefore, the UNPS strata of representativeness include (i) Kampala City, (ii) Other Urban Areas, (iii) Central Rural, (iv) Eastern Rural, (v) Western Rural, and (vi) Northern Rural. Prior to the start of the 2005-09/10 field work, 2 UNPS households were also randomly selected in each EA for the purposes of tracking baseline individuals that moved away from original locations since the UNHS 2005-06. The initial UNPS sample was subject to three consecutive waves of data collection after which, parts of the sample was replaced by new households extracted from the updated sample frames developed by the UBOS as part of the 2012 Uganda Population and Housing Census. In addition, the UNPS will fit within the Long-Term Census and Household Survey Program and therefore both the questionnaires and the timing of data collection will be coordinated with the current surveys and census implemented by UBOS. Note: Detailed description of sampling procedure and calculation of panel weights is presented in "Basic Information Document". The document is provided along with this metadata.
Questionnaires: 
The UNPS survey was collected using the following five questionnaires: 1. Household Questionnaire 2. Woman Questionnaire 3. Agriculture Questionnaire, (administered to the subset of UNPS households engaged in agricultural activities) 4. Community Questionnaire 5. Market Questionnaire.
