The Tanzania National Panel Survey (TZNPS) is the first in a series of nationally representative household panel surveys that assembles information on a wide range of topics including agricultural production, non-farm income generating activities, consumption expenditures, and a wealth of other socio-economic characteristics. The first year of the survey was conducted over twelve months from October 2008 to October 2009. It was implemented by the Tanzania National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). The second wave of the TZNPS is planned for fall 2010.
