Poverty dynamics and sustainable development: A long term panel project in Thailand and Vietnam
The objective of this project is to extend the panel household surveys in Thailand and Vietnam for another 9 years (6 waves of rural household and two waves for migrant surveys) to generate a much deeper understanding of income and poverty dynamics in rural areas of rapidly changing emerging economies. This will be achieved by providing high-quality data and making them accessible to an international community of researchers, and by pursuing aspects of this research agenda as part of this project. By facilitating data access and providing advice the project will promote significant advances in research in development and agricultural economics by high-profile research groups worldwide.
Continued panel surveys of village and household level, in addition: migrant tracking surveys;
National Research Data Collection Centers will be set up in the two countries, in Thailand and Vietnam;
A central database of the project will be created.
