 The Collection and Analysis of Social Network Data in Nang Rong, Thailand

Show Summary Details


This chapter describes the network data collected by the CEP-CPC Study of Social Change in Nang Rong, Thailand in 1994-95. The purpose of the study was to monitor and understand the sweeping demographic and social changes occurring in this province. The data collection included a community profile, household survey, and migrant follow-up in 51 villages with over 7,300 households and 42,000 persons. The household survey collected kin and agricultural support network data within and between villages, with household geographic coordinates; all households within a village were surveyed, so the within-village networks are complete. The chapter reviews the study design, fieldwork experience and measurement of network characteristics, and concludes by presenting a sampling of findings from studies using the network data.
