1994 Questionnaires and Codebooks


The 1994 Community Profile (English | Thai) was conducted in all of the Nang Rong villages, including but not limited to ones part of the 1984 data collection. It collected information about population size and composition, cropping, water sources, agricultural technology, electrification, transportation and communication, health and family planning services, village groups and committees, and perceptions about deforestation.  


The 1994 household survey consisted of a complete household census in each of the 51 villages that participated in the 1984 data collection.  In the 10 years since the 1984 data collection, the 1984 households changed in numerous ways.  If the 1984 household split into two or more households then one and only one was designated as the successor 1984 household.   The successor 1984 household was administered the Old Household survey (EnglishThai), while the other households, plus any other households that formed after 1984, were administered the New Household survey (EnglishThai).  

Both household surveys obtained social and demographic facts about current members; yearly life history data for those 18-35, including information about migration patterns and occupation; sibling networks for 18-35 year olds; household characteristics, including plots of land owned and rented, use of agricultural equipment, crop mix, planting and harvesting of rice, cassava, and sugar cane, and household debts.  The Old Household survey also obtained substantial detail on the whereabouts and current characteristics of 1984 household members who no longer reside in the household; and visits and exchanges of goods and money with former household members. The 51 1984 villages split administratively into 76 villages by 1994. Everyone living in any of the original or split villages was included in the data collection.

Migrant Follow-Up

The 1994-1995 Migrant Follow-Up survey (EnglishThai) 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. Persons resident in 1984 but no longer resident in 1994 were candidates for follow-up 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).  We succeeded in finding and interviewing about 70 percent of the migrants.
