The Nigeria General Household Survey 2010-2011 was also the Living Standards Measurements Survey. The purpose of this survey was to gather information about the activities and demographic characteristics of agricultural households during different times. The data were collected through a variety of in-home in-person interviews. The questionnaires included one on household characteristics, one on community assets, and one on agriculture.

The post-planting interviews took place from August through October 2010. The post-harvest interviews took place from February through April 2011. The sample size for both data collection periods combined was 4,851 households and 27,993 individuals.
