Agricultural Integrated Survey Programme - AGRISurvey

Uganda established the Annual Agricultural Survey (AAS) in 2017. The survey, designed and developed by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBoS), envisages four rounds of data collection per year (two in each season) on a sample of approximately 7,000 agricultural households.

Through the AGRISurvey Programme, FAO is providing technical and financial assistance to AAS. the FAO technical support addresses the following areas:
i) revision of the data collection instruments; ii) expansion of the survey scope; iii) development of electronic questionnaires; iv) survey integration;
v) data documentation, anonymization and dissemination. In addition, FAO filled-in the survey financial gaps, thus ensuring the regularity of the operations which had previously suffered from intermittent governmental funding.

The AGRISurvey programme in Uganda started in 2018 and it is ongoing. Since the beginning of the programme, FAO supported the 2018 survey (second season) and the 2019 survey (ongoing). In addition, in collaboration with the World Bank, FAO is supporting UBoS in the integration of the AAS and the Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS). Assistance is provided on questionnaire development, sampling, field work organization.
