How Do Quantitative Gender Indicators Compare To Qualitative Findings In The Analysis Of Gender Differences In Agricultural Productivity ? Evidence From Uganda

In sub-Saharan Africa, female-managed plots often show a significant gap in productivity compared to men's plots. To examine these differences, a variable to determine who in the household controls agricultural plots is needed. There is variability in the ways in which gendered control over agricultural plots is defined and measured across studies. Many studies show that an in-depth analysis of intra-household relationships is necessary, as this is often a major unexplained factor in productivity differences.
