|Title:||National Survey of Family Planning Practice, Fertility, and Mortality in Thailand, 1979|
|Primary Investigator(s):||John Knodel|
|Abstract:||The National Survey of Family Planning Practice, Fertility, and Mortality in Thailand was conducted in 1979 by the Institute of Population Studies, Chulalongkorn University, with interviewing concentrated in April and May. In most developing countries the censuses, vital registration procedures and related basic data sources are of limited value in measuring and analyzing demographic trends. In Thailand they have been supplemented by a series of national surveys that touch upon virtually all aspects of demographic change. They include the Longitudinal Study of Social, Economic and Demographic Change, Rounds 1 and 2, carried out by the Institute of Population Studies, Chulalongkorn University, between 1969 and 1973. The first round (LS1) involved field work in rural areas in 1969 and in urban areas in 1970. For the second round (LS2) the rural surveys were carried out in 1972 and the urban surveys in 1973. Information was collected on socioeconomic characteristics of household heads and ever-married women, household structure and type, ethnicity, language, commuting patterns, migration, fertility and family planning. |
