Replication Data for: Development of the Project-Level Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (pro-WEAI)


The project-level Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (pro-WEAI) is a survey-based index designed for use by agriculture development projects to measure project impacts on women’s empowerment, diagnose areas of women’s disempowerment, and inform strategies to address deficiencies in specific settings. Pro-WEAI was developed jointly by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), and 13 agricultural development projects in Africa and South Asia as part of the Gender, Agriculture, and Assets Project, Phase 2 (GAAP2). Pro-WEAI is an adaptation of the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI), originally developed in 2012 by IFPRI, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and OPHI. This data package contains baseline data from five GAAP2 projects and Stata .do files necessary for replicating the results of Malapit et al. (2019). The data include all items needed to calculate pro-WEAI, as well as the basic demographic information (gender and household type) used in the analysis.
