Alternate Title: Substantive Report #3, Guatemalan Earthquake Study

"This is a preliminary report prepared on the basis of a partial analysis of the data available from the Guatemalan Earthquake Study. [...] Considerable controversy has developed concerning the need for emergency food distribution and concerning the long range effects of such distribution on the Guatemalan economy. This report summarizes data obtained from interviews with a sample of 1100 household heads in the heavily damaged areas of Guatemala. [...] While the results of these interview questions offer data related to the food problem following the earthquake, the kind of information that they yield is largely opinion or attitudinal data. In this report we will take a preliminary look at the results of these interview questions and relate them, where possible, to the controversy over food distribution."
