Purpose: Research Thesis

The micro data of the working paper will be needed to conduct the research thesis. The paper utilized the survey questionnaire entitled PIDS Impact Evaluation of Agricultural Insurance (2016). Personal information regarding the farmers need not to be included, as long as we may have a way to anonymously identify the farmers (i.e. farmer's ID/age/location).

Our crop type of interest includes Rice, Corn, Coconut, and Banana. 

For specific details on the variables that the group might need, I may be contacted through: 09279985317 /
