Case Studies

As part of the Gender and Assets Toolkit we have compiled a number of case studies of projects collecting mixed methods data on gender and assets.  These case studies come from both the GAAP portfolio and from other projects preceding GAAP that focus on gender and assets. The case studies are intended to provide practical examples and also illuminate differences across contexts, and how the researchers/investigators adapted their studies to these different contexts.  For each case study we provide background information on the project, an overview of methodology, access to survey instruments when possible and a brief overview of key findings related to gender and assets. We also provide feedback on the survey methodology from project leaders themselves to get a sense of what aspects of data collection were more and less successful.  In general, we have three  types of case studies: (1) case studies that illustrate how (quantitative) household surveys can be designed to collect gendered asset data, usually drawing on prior qualitative work; (2) a case study showing how gendered asset data was collected in the context of a study that combined anthropological techniques (participant-observation) with a longitudinal sociological survey; and  (3)  case studies that show how national statistical systems can better collect gender disaggregated information in agriculture.  You can view and download the full collection of GAAP Case studies or Other Case Studies or download each case study individually below:
