Data Quality

  • A few fams reported area planted without reporting yield. Others reported yield without reporting area planted. This can result in crazy statistics like 86 kilograms of celery per square metre, for which one farm only reported area and another farm reported only yield. For final results, we should either exclude produce that lacks one or the other metric, or assign missing metrics based on island averages or industry standards.
  • Many of the statistics below were a "many-to-many" relationship, for example, many farms had many crops. This resulted in an input area where interviewers were supposed to add items to the list as needed. Instead, some surveys have all additional items listed per-farm, with the note "yes" in the applicable item's comment field. These need to be corrected one-by-one before these statistics can be useful.
