Agricultural Innovation and Resource Management in Ghanaian Households: Survey Data

http://www.econ.yale.edu/~cru2/interview.jpgWorking papers based on the survey (please note that these are mostly highly preliminary and subject to change):

The survey modules were administered according to this schedule. Here are some pictures from the area.

The "Code Books + Questionnaires" column contains pdf reproductions of the relevant survey instruments, and files describing the data and response coding. The "Raw Data + Programs" column contains raw data from the survey in Paradox for Windows (version 4.5) format, along with the Stata programs that translate that data into Stata format and correct the typographical and coding errors in the raw data. The "Final Data" column contains the corrected data in Stata format.
