2000 Questionnaires and Codebooks


The 2000 Community Profile (EnglishThai) was conducted in all of the Nang Rong villages, including but not limited to ones part of the 1994 data collection.  It collected information about the village history, population size and composition, education, cropping, water sources, agricultural technology, occupations, temples, transportation and communication, health and family planning services and village settlement.


The 2000 household survey consisted of a complete household census in each of the 51 villages that participated in the 1984 and 1994 data collections.  Over the years, the 1984 and 1994 households changed in numerous ways.  If the household split into two or more households then one and only one was designated as the successor household.   The successor household was administered the Old Household survey (EnglishThai), while the other households, plus any other households that formed after 1994, were administered the New Household survey (EnglishThai).   If a successor household was not found in the village at all, then a Moved Household survey (EnglishThai) was completed by asking a villager(s) about the members from that "lost" household. 

The information collected from these three household surveys not only provided basic demographic data but also information about individual migration experiences (both temporary and permanent), life history events, sibling relationships, household characteristics, and data about household socio-economic status and labor exchange networks. An innovative task within the old and new household surveys was linking households to the parcels of land they use/own, obtaining a 3-year crop history on these parcels of land, and identifying the current users/owners of neighboring parcels of land.  The 51 villages from 1984 split administratively into 76 villages by 1994 and then into 92 villages by 2000.  Everyone living in any of the original or split villages was included in the data collection.

Migrant Follow-Up

The 2000-2001 Migrant Follow-Up survey collected data from migrants from 22 of the original 51 villages. The 22 villages were selected randomly within strata created by cross-classifying general location (quadrant) and distance from major paved roads in 1984.  In the first phase of the migrant follow-up, migrants were candidates if they had gone to one of four destination areas: Bangkok and surrounds; the Eastern Seaboard (a focus of rapid growth and development), Korat (a regional city), or Buriram (the provincial city).   These migrants were administered the Rural to Urban Migrant Follow-Up survey (EnglishThai).  In the second phase of the migrant follow-up, migrants were candidates if they had gone to another village in the Buriram province.  These migrants were administered the Rural to Rural Migrant Follow-Up survey (EnglishThai).
