To practice (2) – Like a fly


The household questionnaire is complete, composed by 10 sections:

  1. Households’ composition;
  2. Migration
  3. Physical living standards
  4. Social capital
  5. Health conditions
  6. Economic activity
  7. Consumption and savings
  8. Agriculture and farming
  9. Small Business Program
  10. Vulnerability

A questionnaire should take into account  the context and the research questions.  Also, I tried to plan analytically the interview process and organising quick, meticulous and efficient data collection and input. Finally, a responsible data collection and input allows dealing with ethical issues of privacy, veracity and objectivity and the one-shot nature of the data collection (there is no possibility, in the short run, to come back to the same family to ask questions again).

Now it’s time to take a deep breath, knock the door and entering, like a fly, in the community households’ life. Like a fly, insignificant, hoping they will not see me as a disturbing element, at least not too much.
