Abstract: This paper is the first output generated with the data collected in that survey. It is a descriptive piece that focuses on identifying and presenting a snapshot of the rural economy in the Zambezi Valley cash cropping economies. It makes it by presenting key statistics on selected representative characteristics of rural households in both cotton and tobacco growing areas. For each of those areas, the tabular and graphical results are broken down into growers versus nongrowers of those key cash crops. Although not analytical, the paper sheds light in a number of issues of concern in cash cropping economies in the region.
