Interviewer instructions
For each plot, ask the respondent to estimate the area. Use the land unit codes for acres (1), hectares (2), square meters (3), and square feet (4). You should record area to the nearest half unit, except for small fields or gardens which are less than one unit. A field that is less than one hectare or acre is listed as "0.1" "0.2", "0.3", "0.4", "0.5", "0.6", etc., whichever is closest to its actual size. For "a quarter acre" or "a third of an acre" use "0.3", for "two-thirds of an acre" use "0.7" and for "three-quarters of an acre" use "0.8".
