The second wave of the Ethiopia Socioeconomic Survey (ESS), the nationally-representative Ethiopia LSMS 2013-2014 added an urban component to the rural-only sample that was included in the first wave (ERSS). Since the first round included only rural households, longitudinal panel data is only available for the rural sample; future waves of the ESS are planned to be nationally representative. Estimates can be made for five regions: Addis Ababa, Amhara, Oromiya, SNNP, and Tigray. The expanded sample included 3,776 panel households from the previous rural sample and 1,486 new households in the urban sample. As in the previous wave, the survey took place over three visits: household tracking and post-planting questionnaires in September-October 2013, a livestock questionnaire in November-December 2013, and household, community, and post-harvest questionnaires at the third visit in February-April 2014.
