The Ghana socio-economic panel survey is now on the ground. After over two months of behind the scenes work on tweaking and then printing survey instruments, we have let loose an army of surveyors on to the Ghanaian people.
5000 families all over the country, 17 teams with 85 field staff, and 4 months of field work to complete 320-page household surveys expected to take 10 hours per family and 60-page community surveys. We start now, take a week-long break for Christmas and then continue in the new year, hoping to finish by April.
Field visits to start next week. I cant wait!
