The surveys were undertaken for different purposes and therefore questionnaires were designed differently. The degree of intensity of the data collection varied across subject matter among different surveys. 1. The first survey, carried out in 1966 by Hiromitsu Umehara, was intended H. Umehara Y.

During this record-keeping project, several intriguing phenomena were observed on land tenure and labour employment relations in accordance with traditional community norms. The 1976 survey aimed at producing data for the analysis of those relations (Hayami and Kikuchi, 1981, ch. 5). The 1980 survey and 1983 surveys aimed at extending the analysis of labour relations involving labour migrations from within to outside East Laguna Village (Kikuchi and Opena, 1983). The 1980 survey was especially detailed on demographic variables so that population data could be extended to 1918 by means of family reconstitution.

We have undertaken this task by means of an intensive study of East Laguna Village. By limiting our investigation to one village, the burden of detailed data collection over a wide range of economic and social variables can be reduced to a feasible amount. Moreover, close personal observations and interactions with villagers akin to the approach of anthropologists and sociologists are the only way to understand the nature and role of community institutions and norms that govern economic activities in the rural sector of the Third World.
