Challenges of Collecting Survey Data on the Mississippi Gulf Coast After Hurricane Katrina: An In-Depth Interview Study of Survey Team Members
Anthropology and Sociology
The purpose of this paper is to offer a brief description of the unique context faced by a team of researchers collecting survey data on the Mississippi Gulf Coast four months after Hurricane Katrina (see Swanson et. al. this issue for more information on the larger study). Based on in depth interviews with survey team members, we discuss several challenges faced during data collection: locating subjects, soliciting subjects' participation, and collecting completed surveys. We conclude by discussing the methodological implications of these challenges.
