This report presents the findings of the baseline survey conducted for a randomized impact evaluation of the second phase of Productive Social Safety Net (PSSN II).

The impact evaluation aims to measure the overall impact of the public works and enhanced livelihood packages and also disentangle the relative contribution of each package to the overall impact. The baseline data were collected between April and June 2022 from 11,086 households in 434 villages in the 36 poorest Project Area Authorities (PAAs) across 14 regions in Tanzania Mainland and 3 regions in Zanzibar. They provide information about PSSN II beneficiary households before the public works and livelihood packages were rolled out.
