The first part is a very short description of the notions about economic development which prompted the desire to design and administer the survey being discussed. The second part describes some of the procedures needed to get the survey underway, and also discusses some of the problems and delays which were encountered. The third part describes the sample frame used and the selection of the sample, as well as the final make up of the interviews and the response rates in different strata. The fourth part is a short description of the procedure used to administer the questionnaire. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. The fifth part is a description of the coding procedures along with a copy of the coding manual. The final part is a very short discussion of what has been done along with short descriptions of two extensions of this research which seem interesting to me.
