Ethiopian Village Studies

The Ethiopian Village Studies are a series of collaborative, interdisciplinary studies edited and produced jointly by the Department of Sociology, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia and the Centre for the Study of African Economies, Oxford, UK and financed by the UK Overseas Development Administration. The Studies cover villages which also took part in the Ethiopian Rural Household Survey (ERHS), for which household economic survey data has been collected and is available at our CSAE Ethiopia ERHS Data web pages.

The Studies can be downloaded free of charge as a PDF (Portable Document Format) file. PDF files may be viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader, available for free by downloading from Adobe's web-site.

For each Study, three versions are available: without photographs, with low-resolution photographs, and with high-resolution photographs. This is because the two pages of photos increase the file size disproportionately. File sizes are given below, as the link to the file.
