Since income measurement is prone to many complications and biases, the indicator does not aim to measure the exact changes in the respondent’s income. That is why it assesses only approximate changes, focusing primarily on whether the pre-defined minimum increase was achieved.
If the supported income generation activities are prone to seasonal differences in the levels of generated income (e.g. as is the case with agriculture), ensure that the baseline and endline data are collected at the same time of year.

(Note: Different language can be used such as vulnerable population or at-risk group. However, the meaning should remains the same).
Provided assistance includes but not limited to livelihood activities, income generation activities, skill training, job placement, internships, low-interest loans, or in-kind productive assets (i.e. equipment, tools, specialized training).
