Western Highlands Integrated Program Evaluation Addendum to the Baseline Report: Sampling Considerations Abstract:

This document is an addendum to the Monitoring and Evaluation Survey for the Western Highlands Integrated Program: Baseline 2013 report released in 2014 (Angeles, Hidalgo, Molina-Cruz, Taylor, Urquieta-Salomón, Calderón…Romero, 2014). It contains detailed additional technical information on the sampling procedures used in the baseline household survey, including the development of the sampling frame for domains specific to the Rural Value Chains Project (RVCP); the initial selection procedures for primary and secondary sampling units (census tracts and households, respectively); and procedures for sampling unit replacements.

The content is organized in three sections: 1) unit identification and selection processes for sample domains 1 and 2, which relied heavily on beneficiary lists obtained from program partners and subsequent household mapping and verification activities; 2) the necessary deviations from probability-based approaches in census tract selection and possible analytic implications; and 3) the replacement of households in the sample and likelihood of affiliated bias in the baseline results.
