This data file is provided with the ESS data to facilitate converting non-standard units into square meters. The ESS data provide both standard unit measures of land (from GPS and/or rope and compass measures) and self-reported values which may be reported in local units. The included conversion factors have not been used to convert self-reported land values into standard unit measures. The provision of these conversion factors should not be interpreted as an endorsement of these factors by the CSA or the LSMS-ISA team. Neither the CSA nor the LSMS-ISA has validated these conversion factors under the ESS program. The conversion factors were sourced primarily from a report completed by the CSA and a study on land certification in Ethiopia, and supplemented by other internal CSA sources.
Crop_CF_Wave3.dta contains conversion factors for crops to be used with the agricultural module. For more information on how to use this file with the data, see Section 6.4 of the Basic Information Document, provided under Related Materials.
