Gender Perceptions in Southeast Asian Countries: Findings from JICA-RI Value Surveys

Though the questionnaire s were essentially the same, the method for conducting the survey s was different between the two Muslim - majority countries (Indonesia and Malaysia) and the two Muslim - minority countries ( the Philippines and Thailand ) . In the former, the survey s were nation - wide . Samples were chosen from all the districts , and the total number of respondents and the percentage of Muslim respondents from each district are proportional to the number and distribution of the population across the nation and in the district s . I n the latter two countries , specific districts were selected so that Muslim majority area s and Muslim minority area s could be compared , and surveys were not conducted elsewhere in the countries. In the Philippines, the National Capital Region (NCR), or Metro Manila, was chosen as the Muslim minority region , and the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) , the representative area with a majority Muslim population . In Thailand, three regions were selected: Bangkok as the Muslim minority region , the “ Patani region ” composed of three Southern border provinces (Yala, Pattani, and Narathiwat) as a Muslim majority conflict - prone region, and “ Proximal provinces ” (Songkhla and Satun neighboring the Southern provinces ) as a Muslim majority non - conflict region . The numbers of Muslim and non - Muslim samples are largely the same in each region . The different sampling method s were adopted because the purpose of the surveys is not a cross - county comparison but a comparison of Muslim and non-Muslim populations in each country.
