The National Panel Survey (NPS) is a nationally representative household survey that collects information on the living standards of the population, including their consumption expenditure, non-farm income generating activities, agricultural production, and other socio-economic characteristics. The term “panel” indicates that the survey will follow the population from the original sample over time to track the evolution of their living standards.

This report presents findings from the fifth wave of the survey that was implemented from December 2020 to January 2022.

The fifth wave of the National Panel Survey follows four previous waves: the first wave was conducted between October 2008 and October 2009; the second wave was fielded between October 2010 and November 2011; the third wave was implemented between October 2012 and November 2013; and the fourth wave was conducted between October 2014 and November 2015.
