In 2012, SLRC implemented the first round of an original sub-regional panel survey in DRC aimed to produce data on people's livelihoods, access to and experience of basic services, and people’s perceptions of governance. Data was collected from 1,259 households from 9 villages between September and November 2012 across South Kivu, and are representative at the village level. A second round of the survey, where we will return to the same households, will be conducted in 2015/16. This paper reports on the baseline findings emerging from statistical analysis of the South Kivu first-round data.
