Sampling Guide (with 2012 Addendum)

publication coverThese materials provide sampling guidance for baseline and final performance evaluation surveys in the context of USAID Food for Peace Title II development food assistance programs. The guide provides methods and instructions for developing the design of a population-based household survey and provides information on how to randomly select samples of communities, households, and/or individuals for such surveys. It emphasizes the use of probability sampling methods, which are essential to ensure that the survey represents the target population. In the addendum, an updated approach for sample size calculation is provided, which will result in a household sample size that is more likely to achieve the required sample size of children for child-level indicators.
