Tracking results in agriculture and rural development in less-than-ideal conditions

2008

The Sourcebook provides a number of workable approaches for designing an M&E system that would be of greatest relevance to different agricultural and rural development (ARD) activities, projects and programmes, and degree of data availability. A set of 19 priority indicators based on the criteria of compatibility, availability and relevance [...]

Food deprivation trends: Mid-term review of progress towards the World Food Summit target
Working paper series

2007

In his pioneering study carried in the early 1960’s, Sukhatme had formulated the estimate of the prevalence of undernourishment in a population within a bivariate distribution framework where dietary energy consumption (DEC) and dietary energy requirement (DER) are considered as random variables. The evaluation of the formula required the specification [...]

The Probability Distribution Framework for estimating the Prevalence of Undernourishment
Working paper series

The effect of sampling design on the reliability of estimates of the variance of distributions derived from household survey data: a simulation study
Working paper series

2007

On a regular basis, FAO produces estimates of the prevalence of undernourishment and related measures that require estimates of the frequency distribution of household per capita food consumption, expressed in terms of dietary energy (kilocalories).

On reliability of estimates of inequality in distributions derived from sample survey data
Working paper series

2007

For studying inequalities in populations, the interest often lies in estimating frequency distributions. Several factors of interest, such as income or expenditure, depict highly skewed distributions. The study of economic inequality with respect to such distributions is of common interest, and estimation of frequency distributions is more meaningful in such [...]
