The survey was conducted for the study of the Differential Impact of Modern Rice Technology conducted by the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies in collaboration with the International Rice Research Institute. Initial sample size: 1,245 households [Hossain, M., Sen, B. and Rahman, H.Z., 2000. Growth and distribution of rural income in Bangladesh: analysis based on panel survey data. Economic and Political Weekly, pp.4630-4637.]. Panel sample size in 2000 was 379 households. The repeated surveys were conducted by 2000-2001 by the International Rice Research Institute for a study on the impact of rice research on poverty reduction sponsored by the International Food Policy Research Institute. The same households were revisited again 2005 and 2008 for poverty mapping in Bangladesh and for assessing the impact of the rise in food prices on rural livelihoods. A multi-stage random sampling followed for sample selection from 62 villages in 57 districts (out of 64) for the benchmark survey. Income data is compiled by including income received + consumption of self-produced products+imputed value of the utilisation of resources owned by the household, such as land, family workers, and draft animals.
