Nang Rong Projects Social Survey Data

The social surveys were the starting point for research in the Nang Rong setting.  They consist of three waves of data collection -- 1984, 1994, 2000.   The baseline was established in 1984 where two surveys - community and a complete household census - were conducted in 51 study villages.  A second round of surveys were fielded a decade after the baseline, 1994, building on and extending the original design and focus.  A migrant follow-up survey was added to track a sample of migrants who had gone to one of four urban destinations.  The 2000 round of data collection again built on the previous data collection efforts incorporating a geo-spatial component in addition to the community, household and migrant follow-up surveys. The Social Survey Data table summarizes the data across the three waves.

1984 Data Collection

Two surveys were conducted in 1984 -- a community survey in 51 study villages, and a complete household census conducted in the study villages, with the census obtaining information on all members of all households.

1994-95 Data Collection

The 1994/95 data were collected through a community survey administered in all villages in Nang Rong, including but not limited to the original 51; a household survey, a complete census of all households in each of the 51 villages, and a migrant follow-up, which collected data from out-migrants from 22 of the original 51 villages who had gone to one of four urban destinations (metropolitan Bangkok; the Eastern Seaboard, a focus of rapid growth and development; Korat, a regional city; and Buriram, the provincial city).

2000-01 Data Collection

The 2000/01 data collection included a community survey, in all villages in Nang Rong, a household survey, a complete census in the 51 study villages, and the collection of locational data for dwelling units and agricultural plots, linked to the household survey, as well as a migrant follow-up that tracked migrants from 22 villages to the four urban destinations and to rural villages within Nang Rong district.
