WIDE3 2010-2013

Across the three stages seven topics were investigated in all 20 sites and three topics were pursued in Stages 1 and 2 (14 sites). In the second phase of Stage 1 three unique topics were followed up: gender, HIV/AIDS and the lead up to the 2010 election. There were no separate modules on HIV/AIDS or gender in Stages 2 and 3; instead questions on both topics were posed in a number of the more general modules. In Stage 2 there was a long module on the Productive Safety Net Programme since most of the communities were involved in it. In Stage 3 the focus was on wealthier cash-crop producing communities and there were special modules on Farming an Non-farming.
