as it allows for a more comprehensive analysis of how households add to their human and physical capital,
how education affects earnings, and the role of government policies and programs on poverty, inter alia.
• An important objective of the GHS-Panel survey is the development of an innovative model for collecting
agricultural data in conjunction with household data.
• The GHS-Panel is a nationally representative survey of approximately 5,000 households.
