SAFI (Studying African Farmer-Led Irrigation) is a currently running project which is looking at farming and irrigation methods. This is survey data relating to households and agriculture in Tanzania and Mozambique. The survey data was collected through interviews conducted between November 2016 and June 2017. The survey covered such things as; household features (e.g. construction materials used, number of household members), agricultural practices (e.g. water usage), assets (e.g. number and types of livestock) and details about the household members.

This is a teaching version of the collected data, it is not the full dataset.

The survey is split into several sections:
A – General questions about when and where the survey was conducted.
B - Information about the household and how long they have been living in the area
C – Details about the accommodation and other buildings on the farm
D – Details about the different plots of land they grow crops on
E – Details about how they irrigate the land and availability of water
F – Financial details including assets owned and sources of income
G – Details of Financial hardships
X – Information collected directly from the smartphone (GPS) or automatically included in the form (instanceID)

key_id Added to provide a unique Id for each observation. (The InstanceID field does this as well but it is not as convenient to use)
