2000 Field Manuals

In addition to the questionnaires and codebooks for each of the three survey components - community, household and migrant follow-up, we highly recommend reviewing these field manuals. In fact, it may be more beneficial to study these field manuals first before looking over the questionnaires and codebooks.

Community Field Manual

Community data is collected from all of the villages in Nang Rong.  This information is important for providing data about the social and physical context for the individual behaviors to be studied.  There were 346 administratively distinct villages in Nang Rong district in 2000.  For each of the Nang Rong study villages, the community profile should be collected by the GPS team responsible for that village.  These community interviews will serve as an introduction to the community for the research team and the villagers.  They will also provide a key item for the household interviews - the household list for all household ids.

Household and Individual Field Manual

The Nang Rong Project's research purpose is to study the effect of rapid social and environmental change upon the lives of people living in Nang Rong, Thailand, as well as those who have migrated from Nang Rong.  The data will provide a detailed account of villagers' lives between 1984 and 2000.  Important aspects of the research are to understand migration processes, fertility and contraceptive behavior, and life course choices within the context of rapid social and economic change.  Other important aspects are to examine a variety of social networks and analyze their effect on individuals.  Finally, data are also designed to be integrated with geographic and environmental data to analyze the relationship between population and the environment.

Migrant Follow-Up Field Manual

This is the second phase of data collection for the 2000-01 Survey.  In this phase, the project focuses on individuals and families that lived in selected Nang Rong study villages in 1984 and/or 1994 who were not living in that village when the 2000 household interviews were conducted.  Following migrants provides data to describe changes that have been occurring outside Nang Rong to those who used to live in Nang Rong.  The migrant data will be linked back to the household data for comparisons between those who migrated versus those who stayed in (or returned to) Nang Rong District.
