Indicator Phrasing

English: number of pre-defined types of [specify the products] sold by the target sellers

French: le nombre moyen de types prédéfinis de [précisez les produits] vendus par le vendeur

Czech: počet předvybraných typů [určete skupinu produktů] prodávaných cílovými prodejci

What is its purpose?

The indicator assesses the average number of pre-defined types of products (such as different agricultural inputs) sold by the target sellers. It is used in interventions aiming to increase the diversity of the products sold by the targeted sellers.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of the targeted shop owners/ sellers:

  

RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTION (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)

Q1: What are all the types of [specify the products] that you sell?

A1: It is recommended that you prepare a checklist listing all the products the seller is expected to sell (such as the most essential types of agricultural tools, seeds, etc.) and together with the seller identify which of them are sold.

 

Calculate the indicator's value by calculating the average number of pre-defined types of the given products sold by all the surveyed sellers. 

Important Comments

1) Keep seasonality in mind – sellers might correctly decide to sell certain products only during a certain season when the demand is highest (for example, selling seeds before the agricultural season starts) and decreasing their stock to (nearly) zero during the off-season.
