What is the total balance in savings and liquid assets of this type up to today?
Record the total balance in the saving books, value of goods, saving assets, current
storage as of the interview date. Value of goods, assets, foreign currency are counted in value in
terms of Vietnamese currency.
Credit or savings which will not be possible to collect should not be recorded.
This information is very hard to obtain; the interviewer should be subtle and try to
convince the respondent to trust him/her, and simultaneously avoid the presence of any third
persons, especially non-family members.
In the special case that the respondent admits to use any savings form, but they do not
want to say the amount in this item, the interviewer should try to explain and convince them, if
the interviewer fails in the end, record clearly "KB" to that item.
