    Information on rural incomes, livelihoods and living conditions plays a fundamental role in understanding medium and long term trends in the structural transformation of agriculture and rural economies. Comparable data are required to properly design, monitor and assess the impact of context-specific policies aimed at making the transformation more inclusive to reduce rural poverty, hunger and inequality. Accessible, timely and comparable information on rural incomes, livelihoods and their evolution, however, is not available in many countries, nor easily accessible. To fill this gap, FAO, the World Bank and IFAD have decided to collaborate in developing a Rural Livelihoods Information System (RuLIS). RuLIS will scale-up the production and compilation of data on incomes, livelihoods and rural development from a large pool of countries, and link them to policy making.

    RuLIS is a tool to support policies for reducing rural poverty, bringing together harmonized indicators and comparable data across countries and over time on rural incomes, livelihoods and rural development. It includes a set of harmonized household- and individual-level data and indicators on different aspects of livelihoods, including crops and livestock production, off-farm and non-farm income generating activities, households’ composition and demographics, agricultural inputs, technology use, access to social protection, time use, shocks and migration. RuLIS currently includes information from 39 countries, with increasing data coverage in time and space as more micro-data becomes available. RuLIS aims to provide critical information for understanding medium- and long- term trends in the structural transformation of agriculture and rural economies; and for the design of policies that promote and accompany social and economic transformation and enhancement. This brief provides data and information from the RuLIS database, which aggregates Nigeria’s General Household Survey (Nigeria National Bureau of Statistics, 2021) to highlight the results of some key indicators.
