Raw data includes interviews as followed: 10 unstructured, 18 semi-structured and 407 structured interviewees from Burmese worker in Thailand; 10 unstructured, 18 semi-structured and 404 structured interviewees from Cambodian worker worker in Thailand; 20 unstructured, 50 semi-structured, and 417 structured interviewees from villagers from sending area in Myanmar, and 16 unstructured, 36 semi-structured, and 314 structured interviewees from villagers from sending area in Cambodia.
Initial findings suggest that household, perception from society, a group of people who share common background, and religious institution, among others, play vital role influencing migration decision of Burmese migrants in Thailand. Whereas in the case of Cambodian workers in Thailand, wage differential proves to critical factor for their migration decision.
