The individual household method (IHM) was developed by Evidence for Development as a reliable, standardised method of collecting and using household income data that is suitable for operational use. IHM work involves both in-person data collection and the use of specialised analytical software, open-IHM, which can be used to manage complex household data and produce reports, models and predictions to inform policy-making.

This data set includes anonymised data from project areas Masumbankunda, Malawi; Karonga, Malawi; Tigray, Ethiopia; Assela, Ethiopia.

Please also see related file on Qualitative Impact Assessment (QUIP) data which includes some qualitative data collected from a sub-sample of the same households included in this study (only Round 2 files - Round 1 households were not from the same sample set).
