Title
What does variation in survey design reveal about the nature of measurement errors in household consumption?
Author
Abstract
We randomly assigned eight different consumption surveys to obtain evidence on the nature of measurement errors in estimates of household consumption. Regressions using data from more error-prone designs are compared with results from a gold standard survey. Measurement errors appear to have a mean-reverting negative correlation with true consumption, especially for food and especially for rural households.
