520 3  Milk is an important source of cash and nutrients for many
       households in developing countries. Yet, the understanding
       of the role of dairy production in livelihoods and 
       nutritional outcomes is hindered by the lack of decent 
       quality household survey data. Data on milk off-take for 
       human consumption are difficult to collect in household 
       surveys for several reasons that make accurate recall 
       challenging for the respondent (continuous production and 
       seasonality, among others). As a result, the 
       quantification and valuation of milk off-take is 
       particularly difficult in household surveys, introducing 
       possibly severe biases in the computation of full 
       household incomes and farm sales, as well as in the 
       estimation of the contribution of livestock (specifically 
       dairy) production in agricultural value added and the 
       livelihoods of rural households. This paper presents 
       results from a validation exercise implemented in Niger, 
       where alternative survey instruments based on recall 
       methods were administered to randomly selected households 
       and compared with a 12-month system of physical monitoring
       and recording of milk production. The results of the 
       exercise show that reasonably accurate estimates via 
       recall methods are possible and provide a clear ranking of
       questionnaire design options that can inform future survey
