This study’s qualitative component comprised semi-structured interviews, focus groups, and observations of more than 160 informants. In addition to analyzing the quantitative data to derive descriptive statistics, the qualitative data were analyzed to capture common themes and the differences between them. The results of these analyses were then triangulated with the current literature on Isan’s development. This mixed method research allowed the Foundation’s study team to understand Isan people’s perceptions of their livelihoods from a macro as well as a micro perspective.
