Title

How to get it wrong in rural Uzbekistan: an ethnographic critique of household survey categories

Author

Kandiyoti, Deniz

Description

Survey techniques have particular limitations as research tools in an environment where local-level case studies are scares and where a host of new socio-economic processes are creating fundamental shifts in society. Ambiguities surrounding five basic concepts are discussed: household, employment, access to land, income and expenditure.
