Data: Dietary diversity and the potential role of men in improving household nutrition in Tanzania

Data from field surveys in Bahi and Mbarali Districts, Tanzania has been used for analysis in the paper “Dietary diversity and the potential role of men in improving household nutrition in Tanzania”. We are grateful to the individual household members for their time and cooperation in participating in the surveys. The data consist of farmer socioeconomic characteristics (e.g. age, education, access to credit and off-farm income, land size, household participation in nutrition training, etc.), foods consumed over 24 hours prior to the survey date by children (1-5 years old), women (15 -35 years old), and entire households. Scores for household dietary diversity (HDDS), children under five dietary diversity (CDDS), and minimum dietary diversity for women (MDD-W) were computed based on this data. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) – Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (Grant No. 83219278) supported data collection and activities.
