Data Characteristics (Entity and Attribute Overview):

Data Characteristics:

Data are provided in four files: two pdf files which are the original survey questionnaires used and two ASCII comma separated files in which the summary responses for key variables are provided.



File #1: Female_head_household_survey_form.pdf

File #2: Male_head_household_survey_form.pdf

File #3: Female_survey_results.csv

File #4: Male_survey_results.csv



The data in the summary results files are organized as follows:



Question asked

Frequency Percent Cumulative Frequency Cumulative Percent

Response 1

Response 2

Response 3

Frequency missing

Data Application and Derivation:

Social survey data have typically been applied in one of two ways -- to generate descriptive statistics or to serve as either dependent or independent variables in statistical modeling.

Quality Assessment (Data Quality Attribute Accuracy Report):

Quality Assessment:

The summary statistics have been checked and no further changes to the data are anticipated.

Process Description:

Data Acquisition Materials and Methods:

Data were acquired through project personnel interviews of male and female heads of household. The sample was originally selected in 1990 in a previous project. It comprised farm plots of 40-50 hectare plots in 60 sample sectors or areas, representative of migrant farmers who had settled in the main colonization area in the northern Ecuadorian Amazon (currently the provinces of Sucumbios and Orellana, originally Napo province).
