However, state-owned firms and joint-venture firms with public capital still account for nearly 40% of total firm output. In this article we find that the […]

This paper investigates the causes for non-response and measurement errors in household panel surveys designed for assessing vulnerability to poverty in Thailand and Vietnam. Using data from surveys conducted in 2007 and 2008 we show that interview environment, timing, interviewer, and some respondent characteristics significantly affect non-sampling errors. Investigating interviewer bias for household consumption we […]
