Data

On this page you will find over time new datasets, collected with the RHoMIS tool. becoming publicly available.

As a start we make a first, what you might call ‘pre-RHoMIS’, dataset available collected in mid 2014 in 5 sites in three countries in Central America: 3 sites in Nicaragua, 1 in Honduras and one in El Salvador. The data collection was coordinated by Dr. Diego Valbuena, a scientist working for CIAT, and was the result of a collaborative project between CIAT, CIMMYT and ILRI. It as funded by 3 CGIAR research programs: the MAIZE, CCAFS and HumidTropics programs. This is what you could call a ‘pre-RHoMIS’ application because only a subset of the current RHoMIS indicator set was collected. Following the Frelat et al. (2016) publication (see the Background literature page!) all information was collected in a systematic manner to be able to quantify the food availability, food self-sufficiency and income indicators, and indicators that can be derived from these, for example market orientation and livestock orientation. Also the number of months that the households are food insecure was quantified.

Here¬†you find the data (of about 800 households) and the processed results, including a series of visualizations. The zip-file also includes a ‘readme.pdf’ file, which describes the labels of the ‘LP_baseline.csv’ file, which contains all the processed results which forms the basis for the visualization.
