Abstract | View

A multi-stage cluster survey was conducted in two rural rice-producing regions in Bangladesh in 2007-8 as the initial project of a HarvestPlus multi-stage research program to determine the potential impact of zinc-biofortified rice on the zinc and health status among children in Bangladesh who are at risk of zinc deficiency. The project protocol “Assessment of rice intakes and total dietary zinc intakes in rural Bangladesh” was conducted in collaboration with the University of California, Davis and the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B). In each region, 240 children ages 24-48 months and their primary female caregiver were enrolled. Dietary information was collected primarily by direct observation and weighing of food preparation and consumption, including test weighing of milk intakes by breast-fed children. Height and weight were measured in all children and women, and in a subset of children, blood samples were collected and analyzed for concentrations of serum zinc and indicators of infection.

Abstract | View

This dataset is the result of an impact evaluation study undertaken to assess the impact of Alive & Thrive's (A&T) at-scale interventions that combine intensive interpersonal counseling, mass media, and community mobilization in Bangladesh. A&T is a six-year initiative to scale up nutrition to save lives, prevent illness, and ensure healthy growth and development through improved infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Viet Nam.

In Bangladesh, the community-based component was implemented by BRAC, a large nongovernmental organization through its Essential Health Care (EHC) program. The evaluation uses a cluster-randomized controlled design with repeated cross-sectional baseline and endline surveys. Twenty rural subdistricts (upazilas) that are part of BRAC’s EHC program platform for A&T were purposively chosen, then randomly assigned either to A&T (intensive) or to comparison upazilas (non-intensive). The baseline survey was conducted in the 20 upazilas across five divisions in Bangladesh between April and August 2010 by the IFPRI team in collaboration with Data Analysis and Technical Assistance, Ltd. (DATA). Data collection tools and questionnaires were developed based on UNICEF conceptual framework for child growth and development and on the A&T model framework.

Abstract | View

This dataset is was created by re-compiling available open, gender/sex-disaggregated Feed the Future datasets for Bangladesh and applying standard processing methods to enhance their accessibility and interoperability. This process entailed the standardization of variable names and labels, the creation of derived socio-economic indicators such as dietary diversity scores, household dependency ratios, and household age and gender composition. This dataset allows researchers to easily use data for Bangladesh, as well as make cross country comparisons with other standardized datasets. Moreover, the provision of household GIS coordinates (offset for confidentiality purposes) allows users to match data at different levels. This work combines multi-topic household and community socio-economic and agricultural surveys with biophysical datasets from multiple sources, including remote sensing, for a thorough comparison of different phenomena. These biophysical sources include the International Soil Reference and Information Centre (ISRIC) World Soil Information, NASA MODIS vegetation indices and land surface temperature data, and the HarvestChoice spatially-disaggregated subnational crop production statistics database (Spatial Production Allocation Model; SPAM).

Abstract | View

Bangladesh that collects detailed data on (1) plot-level agricultural production and practices, (2) dietary intake of individual household members, (3) anthropometric measurements (height and weight) of all household members, and (4) data to measure women’s empowerment in agriculture index (WEAI). A community survey supplements the BIHS data to provide information on area-specific contextual factors. The BIHS covers 6500 households in 325 primary sampling units. The sample is statistically representative at following levels: (a) nationally representative of rural Bangladesh; (b) representative of rural areas of each of the seven administrative divisions of the country: Barisal, Chittagong, Dhaka, Khulna, Rajshahi, Rangpur, and Sylhet; and (c) representative of the Feed the Future (FTF) zone of influence.

Abstract | View

The Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) is a composite measurement tool that indicates women’s control over critical parts of their lives in the household, community, and economy. It allows us to identify women who are disempowered and understand how to increase autonomy and decisionmaking in key domains. The WEAI is also a useful tool for tracking progress toward gender equality, which is one of the Millennium Development Goals. The WEAI measures the empowerment, agency, and inclusion of women in the agriculture sector in an effort to identify ways to overcome those obstacles and constraints. The Index is a significant innovation in its field and aims to increase understanding of the connections between women’s empowerment, food security, and agricultural growth. The Uganda pilot covered five spatially dispersed rural districts in the northern region (Amuru and Kole), central region (Luwero and Masaka), and eastern region (Iganga). The second pilot was conducted to develop and test a revised version of WEAI in the same districts as the original pilot. Sample villages were randomly assigned to receive either the original (1.1) or revised (2.0) versions of the questionnaire.
