Niger

Round 1 of PMA2020/Niger was conducted exclusively in Niamey among 33 enumeration areas. In Round 2, the survey is being conducted at the national level, with the same Niamey-based resident enumerators from Round 1 grouped into mobile teams for data collection outside Niamey. In addition to the 33 EAs in the Round 1 sample, 51 new EAs were added in Round 2 to obtain estimates representative at the national level as well as for Niamey, urban outside Niamey, and rural. PMA2020/Niger is led by the Institut National de la Statistique (INS) in Niger.
 
Survey progress: Completed three rounds of data collection in Niamey and one round outside Niamey for national estimates (PMA2016/Niger). Access all Niger reports here.
