Livelihood Zone Maps
Livelihood Zone Maps illustrate the country by zone, showing areas where people generally have the same options for obtaining food and income and engaging in trade.

Livelihood Attribute Maps
Livelihood Attribute Maps extract specific information from the profiles and overlay it on a zone map to illustrate graphically where a crisis could have a significant impact.
About Livelihood Attribute Map
Livelihood Attribute Map extracts specific information from the profiles and overlays it on a zone map to illustrate graphically where a crisis could have a significant impact. For example, the map can show where poor households depend on a certain income source, such as livestock sales or casual farm labor. That information provides context, informs analysis and monitoring activities, and helps answer specific food security questions.
Livelihood Zone Descriptions
Livelihood Zone Descriptions accompany a zone map. They briefly describe the main characteristics of the livelihood patterns in that zone, and identify relevant variables by geography.
About Livelihood Description

Livelihood Profiles describe wealth groups and compare their various sources of food and income. The profiles provide a basis for understanding how different groups may be vulnerable to shocks.
About Livelihood Profile
Livelihood Profile briefly describes wealth groups and compares the various sources of food and income particular to each. The profile provides a basis for understanding how and whether different groups may be vulnerable to “shocks” such as drought, flooding, conflict or a market disruption. In recent years, FEWS NET expanded its profiles through a mapping exercise that includes additional baseline information on: livelihood differences between the poor and the better-off, common hazards in the zone, seasonal calendars and a consumption calendar focused on the poor. These livelihood zoning plus profiles are available for 24 countries.
Livelihood Baseline Profiles
Livelihood Baselines provide quantifiable analysis of household livelihood options. They include a detailed breakdown of food, cash and expenditure patterns, as well as coping capacity for various wealth groups.

About Livelihood Baseline
Livelihood Baseline provides quantifiable analysis of household livelihood options. It includes a detailed breakdown of food, cash and expenditure patterns, as well as coping capacity for various wealth groups. The baseline also highlights market patterns and constraints and opportunities for economic growth. Used for outcomes analysis, the baselines can quantify and measure the impact of shocks on households. The analysis is very useful in planning humanitarian assistance, particularly in forecasting whether and when assistance will be needed, how many people might be affected, and what types of assistance will be most helpful.
