Survey ID Number
Community-Based Conditional Cash Transfer Program Impact Evaluation 2009-2012, Baseline, Midline, and Endline surveys
All questionnaires were written in Swahili, and most (>99% at baseline) interviews were communicated in Swahili.
A household questionnaire was administered in each household. It contained modules for the household roster, education, health, assets, and TRUST.
The roster module collected information on sex, age, and relationship of all household members. In the second and third rounds of the survey there were questions about migration both in and out of the household.
The education module contains questions about literacy, highest grade of education attained, and whether currently in school. These data were collected for those at least 3 years old.
The health module contains questions about the number of clinic visits made, health problems in last 4 weeks, treatment details for illnesses, ability to complete activities of daily living (ADL), and anthropometrics. Data on ADL were collected for those at least 15 years old in the first wave of the survey and collected for those at least 60 years old in subsequent waves. Anthropometric and child feeding practices data were collected for those under 5 years old. Other general health data were collected for everyone in the sample.
The child module inquires about the number of various assets (shoes, exercise books, etc) owned for children younger than 6 to 18 years old. It also asks questions about whether the child (4-18 years) works on a family income generating activity.
There are many other sections that pertain to the household as a whole (not its members). These include sections on the CCT program (how many payments has household received, how payment received, understanding CCT rules, etc), housing quality (floor material, roof material, etc), land/livestock owned, crops grown, transfers given/received, shocks (floods, droughts, deaths, etc), trust in community members (shopkeepers, teachers, doctors, etc), and participation in community activities.
Three community-level questionnaires were administered only in the third wave of the survey: The school questionnaire was given to a teacher and covered topics such as school type, size, amenities, and location (GPS). The health facility questionnaire was given to a hospital employee and covered topics such as facility type, size, amenities, location (GPS), and ability to test for a range of illnesses. The last community-level questionnaire was given to a government official to learn about the community. Topics covered included village population, records kept by the local government, frequency of meetings, etc.
