Table 1 Proportion of study participants who made a trip, by trip destination (on the Thai versus Myanmar side of the border or to another village versus forested area) and time (daytrips versus overnight trips)

  1. The proportions do not add up to 100% because individual participants engaged in multiple trip types (e.g. individuals are capable of both making trips to the Thai side and the Myanmar side). (\(\overline{d}\)) indicates the mean number of days by trip type
