Tsimane’ Amazonian Panel Study (TAPS)

The Tsimane’ Amazonian Panel Study operated during 2002-2010 and produced nine consecutive years of longitudinal data on all Tsimane’ living in 13 villages along the Maniqui River, department of Beni, Bolivia.

Publications. Here is a list of downloadable TAPS working papers (pdf's), including files of the working papers that did not appear in journal articles or that might be under review at the time of this writing (February 2013). A complete list of other articles, books, dissertations, and theses from the project can be found below. Forthcoming publications can be found here.

Data: The data sets collected as part of TAPS are free and open to the public. The data dictionary, the history of the project, and other documents are included here. To ensure that the data cannot be used to identify individuals or households you need to send a letter or email to Ricardo Godoy (SID, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, MS 035, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA 02454, USA; email rgodoy@brandeis.edu). The email or letter requesting the data should read as follows:

A. For TAPS Data   At the time of this writing (February 2013) only the 2002-2007 TAPS data is ready for public use; we hope to have the complete 2002-2010 data set ready before the end of 2013. To obtain the most up-to-date data set send an email to Ricardo Godoy with the following information:
