30 August 2017
The seventh panel survey was carried out in 3 provinces of Thailand and 3 provinces of Vietnam between June – August 2017. In total 1941 households in Buriram, Ubon Ratchathani and Nakorn Panom were interviewed and 1898 households from Thua Thien Hue, Ha Tinh and Dak Lak.
To ensure high levels of data quality, sub-team leader and enumerator training was organized in both countries aimed at introducing participants to the TVSEP household questionnaire, the tablet program as well as building up strong survey teams. The survey was led by the National Data Collection manager, Mr. Somkid Naprom in Thailand and Ms. Mai Thanh Tu in Vietnam. The survey team consists of provincial team leaders, provincial team leader assistants, sub-team leaders and enumerators, with more than 60 staff in each country. Furthermore three students from Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, assisted the team in the field.
