Rolling Baseline Survey Methodology for Household Income Impact Assessment in Micro-irrigation Induced Agricultural Development  

11-20-2009 10:55

Working paper presented in session 117 of Evaluation 2009. We present a novel methodology for assessing changes in household income attributable to technology adoption by smallholder farmers. Pre-adoption household incomes of successive cohorts are used to construct a proxy control for exogenous factors such as price fluctuations and weather conditions. This paper describes the application of the rolling baseline method in Nepal and, with preliminary data from Nepal, tests assumptions underlying the methodology related to inter-cohort variation and recall bias.
