  • ANNUAL HOUSEHOLD SURVEY 2016/172018-11-29

    The Annual Household Survey (AHS) is a nationally representative household survey carried out to update the information on the consumption pattern of the Nepali households collected in Nepal Living Standards Survey (NLSS). The data collection of AHS 2016/17 was conducted from September 2016 to July 2017.

    th survey of its kind, the first one was carried out in 2012/13 following the structure of NLSS 2010-11. Annual household surveys are conducted to provide estimates of some major socio-economic indicators on annual basis which would not be possible with other periodic survey such as Nepal Labour Force Survey (NLFS) and Nepal Living Standards Survey which are undertaken at longer intervals. The survey basically aims to provide estimates of consumption by sex, urban-rural area and by consumption quintiles/deciles. Although the major thrust of AHS is on consumption and employment situations, other sectors like education, housing and demographic characteristics are also included. However; this survey does not contain information on employment situation as in previous annual household surveys because NLFS was carried out concurrently this year.

  • Brief on the Food Security Situation in Nepal (Mid-July to mid-November 2017)2018-03-15

    This brief on the Food Security Situation in Nepal (Mid-July to mid-November 2017) includes the results of NeKSAP Technical Working Group (TWG) and/or District Food Security Network (DFSN) meetings held in different districts across Nepal in December 2017.
    These meetings analyzed the food security situation during the period of mid-July to mid-November 2017 (Nepali months of Shrawan to Kartik 2074) and following the restructured district and local government arrangements. Hence, unit of analysis is taken as Ward as opposed to Village Development Committee (VDC) in the past.

    It is reported that some districts could not organize meetings lack of resources (including the human resources) as the trimester meeting coincided with busy time of federal and provincial level elections. This brief includes data for 63 of the 77 districts. We will release Nepali version of this brief sooner.

  • Nepal mVAM Bulletin #22018-02-08

    The eight districts of the mid– and far-western mountains of Nepal are some of the most food insecure areas in the country. Poverty and stunting are much higher there than in other areas and the national average. Recurrence of acute shocks—most recently the 2015/16 winter drought—further erodes resilience.
    To track seasonal changes over time, a food security monitoring survey was started in November 2016 and repeated in June and December 2017.
