The database of the Thailand Vietnam Socio Economic Panel (TVSEP) contains a comprehensive set of socio economic and technical data from 4,400 rural households in 440 villages, collected over up to 9 panel waves from 2007 to 2023,  in six provinces in Thailand and Vietnam. TVSEP data include all important aspects of a household’s living standard measures, demography, geography, shocks, risks, expectations, subjective assessments and behavioral traits of individual household members.
