The Ethiopia Rural Household Survey (ERHS) is a unique longitudinal household survey covering households in a number of villages in rural Ethiopia. Data collection started in 1989, when a team visited six farming villages in Central and Southern Ethiopia. In 1994, the survey was expanded to cover 15 villages across the country.

An additional round was conducted in late 1994, with further rounds in 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2004. These surveys have been supervised by the Economics Department, Addis Ababa University (Economics/AAU), the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE), University of Oxford and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Washington DC.
