Abstract: A longitudinal household survey from World Bank Living Standards Measurement Survey (LSMS) was used for the study. A relatively small (but representative) sample of households residing in the mountainous regions of Nepal (i.e., excluding the low-lying Terai regions) were surveyed in three successive rounds of the Nepal LSMS corresponding to 1995, 2003 and 2010, while other sub-samples were surveyed in two of these waves, thus an unbalanced household panel was used. A household panel data set is used to investigate the effects of economic growth on firewood collection in Nepal between 1995 and 2010.[BREAD Working Paper No. 374].
