Study Notes

Sampling Methodology

  • A random selection of cities and municipalities was taken in each region, with 10 cities/municipalities selected per region using probability proportional to population size (PPS).
  • Barangays (Philippines' smallest political unit) were classified as urban or rural using Philippines Statistics Authority guidelines.
  • Three barangays were selected in proportion to population size for each selected municipality or city.
  • Interval sampling was used to select eight sample households.

Household Selection

  • In the National Capital Region, a starting street corner was selected at random and every tenth household was sampled.
  • In other regions, a random corner was selected and every fourth household was sampled.

Response Rate

  • The total response rate was 42.5%, calculated by multiplying the contact rate, cooperation rate, and survey completion rate.

Survey Instrument

  • Household-level data were collected using a survey instrument designed through an iterative process with disaster experts from academia, government, and NGOs in the Philippines.
  • The survey instrument was translated from English into five languages (Tagalog, Ilocano, Bicolano, Ilonggo, and Cebuano) and back-translated into English.

Survey Administration

  • The survey was conducted by 165 trained interviewers using a digital data collection tool, with face-to-face interviews with adult household members.
  • Supervisors monitored the study full-time, observing live interviews and conducting surprise checks on the research team.

Survey Limitations

  • The survey had a 42.5% response rate, relatively high compared to social sciences standards, but took approximately 1.5 hours to complete, leading to respondent fatigue.
  • The response rate may have been affected by the survey's length, with some respondents refusing or dropping out due to its duration.

Test your knowledge on designing survey instruments for collecting household-level data incorporating nominal and ordinal variables. Explore the iterative process involving disaster experts from academia, government, and NGOs.
