Following a review of the sample design for the 1997/98 Zambia Post-Harvest Survey (PHS), described in the survey reports, summary results were tabulated from the survey data to examine the distribution of the households for the different domains of analysis such as farm size groups. Summary data were also examined for the different crops and animals. The purpose of this report is to document the findings and recommendations from this review. Specific recommendations are made on potential improvements to the sample design. This report also includes the results of the CENVAR analyses, and specifies the procedures for weighting the data and calculating the standard errors. A separate report on “Review of Questionnaire for Post-Harvest Survey (1997/98) discusses issues and recommendations related to the survey questionnaire.
