1994 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.

Household and Individual Field Manual

The 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 1994.  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 1994-95 Survey. The entire project is a follow-up of villages and households first interviewed in Nang Rong in 1984. During the first phase of the 1994-95 Survey, household interviews were conducted in the same villages that were interviewed in 1984. Also, in the first phase, community level data were collected.  The second phase followed those people that lived in these villages in 1984 but no longer in 1994.  The purpose of the 1994-95 Survey was to document how social and economic change affects the lives of individuals.  The follow-up of migrants provides data to describe the changes that have been occurring outside Nang Rong to those who used to live in Nang Rong. The migrant data can be linked with the household data collected in 1994. This will allow comparisons with those from the same area who did not migrate.
