50x2030 Supports Senegal on Fifth Annual Survey Cycle Microdata Release
The Senegalese Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Equipment and Food Sovereignty (MAERSA) recently released microdata from the latest Annual Agricultural Survey (EAA) 2021-2022 with the support of the 50x2030 Initiative.
The EAA is the national survey carried out during the main agricultural season in Senegal in accordance with the goal to provide information on rainfed agricultural production in Senegal. The adoption of the modular approach of the AGRIS method, since the 2017-2018 agricultural campaign, has improved the coverage of the survey by taking into account non-rainfed activities (livestock, horticulture, fishing/aquaculture and agroforestry) of farm households and the integration of the technical, economic, environmental and social dimensions of farms. Thus, in addition to the basic module which collects production and input use data annually, thematic modules are planned on a three-year rotation.
The 2021-2022 edition is characterized by the integration of the ILP module (Farm income, labour and productivity). The introduction of this module makes it possible to collect the information necessary for the calculation of SDGs 2.3.1 and 2.3.2. In addition, the basic module of the 50x2030 questionnaire allows the collection of data for the calculation of SDG 5.a.1 and CAADP indicators (3.1i, 3.1ii, 3.2i, 3.2ii, 3.2iii and 4.1i).
Agricultural data collected through the EAA are regularly providing data users, analysts and policy makers with up-to-date information for data analysis and informed decision-making. To request access to the 2021-2022 EAA microdata, visit: http://anads.ansd.sn/index.php/catalog/272/data-dictionary.
