Living Standards Measurement Study 2015-2016 Wave 3 – Nigeria: Savings

The Living Standards Survey-Nigeria: Savings measure uses 10 items from the third wave of the Nigeria General Household Survey (NGHS-3), which is a nationally representative, multi-dimensional survey conducted across Nigeria in two visits: post-planting and post-harvest seasons. The measure captures bank account use and other forms of formal savings activities. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire located here.
