This project explores change in a large number of Tanzanian villages using a longitudinal approach. We re-visit places that were surveyed in the 1990s (mostly) returning to the same families, generally with the original researchers. We focus particularly on change in assets, which matter a great deal to local definitions of wealth and poverty.

The project is lead by Dan Brockington and involves a large number of co-investigators. Altogether we have re-visited 37 villages from 12 villages. Progress on that work is reported in the blog. We will also be updating the published papers as these appear. For more information contact Dan Brockington.
