Baseline data collection
Decisions on baseline data collection were made by SPSL and IPs of which data to collect, when, how and where data collection should occur, and who should be responsible for the processes of the data collection and data analysis. Sub-section 2.4 shows the geographic distribution of recipient households in the three districts.
Identity of data to be collected
The decisions on which data sets to collect were guided by data needs as discussed at the end of the previous section:
- The need to service several process, output and impact indicators both for SPSL internal management requirements and those of DFAT;
- The next to add to the growing pool of knowledge concerning the processes of extreme poor households begining to move or “graduate” out of poverty;
- The need to learn lessons from the implementation and impact processes; and
- The need to ensure that SPSL and its implementing partners strenuously respect their GEID obligations.
