RRA Notes 2: General Issue
This second issue of RRA Notes includes three short items, all concerned with research methodology in Africa: from Kenya, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
The first article reports from Machakos District of Kenya on how RRA can contribute to improved village resources management.
The next report is from Zimbabwe and discusses the experience of using wealth ranking in the context of a study of household economics and livestock production.
The third contribution reports from Tanzania. During a study on differentiation and class formation, researchers had to find a way of reaching the poorest households. They used a 'possessions score' technique instead of income as an indicator of socio-economic status.
