The overall objective envisaged by the survey is to collect information to assess the food security of households, their level of vulnerability and to identify the beneficiaries targeting criteria for interventions. The full ENSA sample is composed of 8.921 households living in 61 departments. The present work is based on a sample of 6946 households located in rural areas only. Specifically, the sample is composed of those households interviewed just after the rainy season in October 2014. The sample is representative at the regional level. For the ENSA three different types of data collection have been applied: - A focus group with opinion leaders, traditional leaders, local officials, resource persons, NGOs to discuss the main priority to add into the questionnaire; - Household-level interviews with heads of households or their representatives getting all the possible information about household life; and food security. - Community levels interviews to assess price developments and market supply systems.
