The community component of the Shan Agriculture and Rural Economy Survey (SHARES) was conducted in mid-2018 in 323 villages in 12 townships in southern Shan State. The survey was designed to facilitate analysis of recent changes in the rural economy in southern Shan. Data was collected through group interviews conducted with knowledgeable long-term residents in each of the communities surveyed. The survey collected data on recent changes in physical and social infrastructure, transport and mobility, crop cultivation, agricultural mechanization, labor costs and agricultural labor migration, off-farm enterprises and access to credit.
