LSMS Data Quality in Maoist Influenced Areas of Nepal

We investigate whether the quality of LSMS data from Nepal is affected by the Maoists in the districts they control. We find, if any, only minor support for the hypothesis. Furthermore, the Maoists have less control in the plains (terai), where a majority of the population lives, so data from the terai sub-sample of NLSS2 is, in particular, not likely to be biased by the Maoists.
