The Nigeria Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA) relies on national household data to examine the different factors that influence food security and vulnerability in Nigeria. The findings from this analysis will serve as an input into the policymaking process, as well as a resource for the World Food Programme to optimize program delivery and for other development stakeholders working to address hunger and food insecurity in Nigeria.
This assessment uses data from the Living Standards Measurement Study–Integrated Surveys on Agriculture (LSMS–ISA), which is a national survey on household welfare conducted by the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics in partnership with the World Bank. The data used in the analysis represent a 5,000-household panel, which was derived from the larger nationally representative General Household Survey of 22,000 households. This CFSVA is the result of a joint effort between WFP and IFPRI.
