Worlds Apart: Collecting Primary Data on Aids From Semi-Literate Indian Truckers Speaking Different Languages
Experimental and survey research was undertaken with respondents who differed in literacy and communicated in different languages. The topic of research was delicate, as the thought processes of Indian truckers regarding AIDS and their paid-for sexual encounters was elicited. Certain procedures not usually followed in academic research had to be implemented in order to collect data from 99 male truckers intercepted at rest stops, along highways and a trucking terminal. Some of the results from data analysis provide support for hypotheses based on Terror Management Theory and indicate the importance of grounding research in the context of the respondent’s lifestyle.
