LiK 2016 data are posted for public use

Starting October 22, 2019 the data from the fifth wave of LiK Study (2016) are available publicly at IZA Research Data Center at This wave complements the previous available four waves of the LiK data from 2010-2013. 

The fifth wave had a focus on agriculture by introducing a separate agricultural questionnaire that collects data at land plot and farm level. Several new modules – such as social cohesion, aspirations, fragility, and mental health – were added to reflect the multi-topical nature of the survey. The 5th wave of the LiK Study was funded by the consortium of partners including FAO, UCA, and IFPRI, and coordinated by IGZ.
