Pakistan Rural Household Panel Survey (RHPS) is the 1st round of the Rural Household Panel Survey, which aims to provide quantita-tive basis to identify and address urgent economic policy priorities. The RHPS covers 2090 households in 76 primary sampling units in the rural areas of three provinces namely: (i) Punjab; (ii) Sindh; and (iii) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK). The sample is nationally representa-tive of the rural areas of the three provinces. This survey collected information on a large number of topics, such as, sources of in-come, nature of employment, consumption patterns, time use, as-sets and savings, loans and credit, education, migration, economic shocks, participation in social safety nets, and household aspira-tions. Six survey instruments were developed to collect this infor-mation. These included three household level questionnaires (two were designed to collect household information on various house-hold and individual level aspect by males and females separately, and the third was an aspirations questionnaire, conducted on a household member between ages 18-35), a community question-naire, a price questionnaire, and a school questionnaire.
