The second of the Albania LSMS, this survey was the first wave of a panel survey conducted until 2004.  The 2002 sample included 3,600 households. The survey was representative nationally and regionally and for urban and rural areas. There were four questionnaires used: a household questionnaire, a household diary, a community questionnaire, and a price questionnaire administered with the community questionnaire. The diary tracked 14 days of household food consumption. GPS and anthropometric data were collected as well. Topics included household income and expenditures, employment, and household enterprises. The community questionnaire covered community action, transportation, services, issues, and schools.
