As in many developing countries, data
collection has proved to be a considerable challenge in
Papua New Guinea (PNG). A welcome effort at data collection
on dispute incidence and personal security was made in
PNG's household income and expenditure survey (HIES or
the Survey), (2009-2010) an experience that also highlights
some of the challenges of such an exercise. For the first
time, the HIES asked questions about dispute incidence and
personal security. The survey was administered in all
provinces of PNG to a nationally and regionally
representative sample of over 4,000 households, and provides
comprehensive data about the socio-economic status of
households. The results are representative at the level of
the country's four regions (Southern, Highlands,
Momase, and Islands) plus the metropolitan area (which
comprises the major urban areas of National Capital District
and Lae), as well as for a rural or urban breakdown within
each region. This briefing note highlights some of the main
findings on dispute and personal security, noting which
results need to be treated with caution. It also distils a
number of lessons from this data collection effort.
