Enumerators, Monkeys, and Crackers, Oh My!

During the 6 week and now-over silence on this blog, I somehow covered 2000 kilometers on 14 motorcycles with 28 academic enumerators in north-east Liberia . Highlights included convincing people to tell us if they were apart of secret societies, eating porcupine, and watching colleagues carry surveys, monkeys, and crackers into confidential and private interviews.


In retrospect, the monkeys probably engendered trust between enumerators and respondents.
