Abstract / Summary
Undated typewritten draft of an essay by Raymond Firth titled "Fishing on the Kelantan Coast, Malaya: Estimation of Income." Firth explains the difficulties of getting an accurate estimate of incomes of fishing communities and individual fishermen: 1) the income is from a variety of sources, 2) the yields from these sources vary, 3) the number of workers varies, 4) the use of rebates on losses makes tracking such transactions impossible, and 5) the rules for distribution of income vary. The researcher must also know the local terms and customs of the fishing industry when collecting data.
