A survey of 450 taxpayers (enterprises) in the 3 target districts using a sample frame composed of lists of registered enterprises in the 3 districts from FBR, sampled through the systematic random sampling methodology to allow for a self-weighted population sample.

  • Key Informant Interviews with 5-10 policy makers and implementers at the federal and local levels.
