The baseline survey covers 18 rural villages located in four major regions (Tigray, Amhara, Oromia, and Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region). A total of 1,681 households were surveyed, constituting 8,924 individuals, of which 3,183 were 4-14-year-old children.

A total of 789 children were tracked from five of the rural villages, namely Debre Berhan, Dinki, Adele Keke, Adado, and Shumsheha, in order to understand the long-term effects of childhood work on their human capital formation, migration decisions, and earnings in the adult labor markets in Ethiopia. Every attempt was made to track and resurvey migrant resurveying targets to other rural villages, towns and cities and reduce the attrition rate.

    Household Surveys performed in four villages selected from Oromia, Amhara and Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR) following from the ‘Ethiopian Rural Household Survey’ (ERHS) conducted in 2004.It contains detailed data on household consumption and expenditures, assets, income, agricultural activities, land allocation, demographic characteristics, and other variables. From September 2011 to January 2012 another survey of 221 households was conducted in three major regions of central and southern Ethiopia. At the time of this latest survey effort the most recent ERHS survey data available was from 2004. The selection of respondents, determination of sample size, and apportionment of the sample were based on a proportional sampling technique.In addition to addressing important questions from the ERHS survey data, the field survey was designed to generate detailed information on household biomass energy production and consumption practices; as well as farming activities; labour and land allocation; economic and demographic characteristics; and expenditures on food, non-food items, and energy. The 2011 survey effort collected detailed household biomass energy use data. The measurement of household biomass energy use was obtained in traditional units and later converted into kilograms. The conversion factors for each of the biomass were collected from the closest urban centre of each of the study areas. Information obtained on household biomass energy use was collected for a time period of one week before the survey was conducted. It was then aggregated into annual figures, although household biomass energy use may vary seasonally.
