12. Which people are they and which language do they speak?
Asks about language that will be used by the respondent for the second
round of the interview. The interviewer uses the ethnic codes to record the language code. For
example, if a person is of the Tay ethnic minority, but s/he can speak Kinh language for the
interview, record language code as 1.
Upon the completion of respondent selection for the second round of interview, the
general principle is that interviewer does not take advantage to interview any section from 9 to 14
prior to the arranged date for the second round or go on interviewing on any other day, which
may cause inconvenience for the household.
In special cases one can section 8 prior to round 2, if there is a selected woman available
at home for the interview and :
- The household has many production, business activities, including agricultural,
forestry and aquaculture production, and if we leave section 8 to the second round, it
would be too much.
- When the arranged date for the second round comes, the selected woman is expected
to be out.
However, if any members among the selected respondents for the second round, for some
reasons, can’t be met on the arranged date in the second round, arrangement for some other
appropriate date should be made.62
Apart from the special cases mentioned above, if the interviewer comes on the promised
date but fails to meet the selected respondent (from section 7) then it is permissible to interview
another individual who knows a lot about household information. However, if time permits, the
interview team can stay in the locality to interview the right selected person for the second round
as identified in section 7.
Upon the completion of the first round, the interviewer has to remind the household that
in the second round, they will be asked about their daily expenditures for food staples and other
foodstuffs in the coming two weeks.
Do not forget the appointment form with the household. The interviewer has to try to wait
for exactly 2 weeks between two rounds of the interview.
The team leader must remember to record the name of the respondent for sections of the
second round. If he forgets, the interviewer will waste a lot of time in the household recording
names, or mistaking people who should be responding to each section.
If there are any changes in the interval between round I and II (e.g. moved to a new house,
or started a new job), then record to section 0D. Information should be revised in section 7, but
revision of information in other sections of the first round is not permitted.
