This discussion paper builds on and complements a related report, Interwoven: How the Better Work Program Improves Job and Life Quality in the Apparel Sector, published by the World Bank in 2015. A product of World Bank staff and external contributions, including those of co-author Kelly Pike, Interwoven is a quantitative-qualitative study of job and life quality in Lesotho, Kenya, Cambodia and Vietnam. Specifically, Pike developed the methodology to be used for data collection in all countries, including the survey instrument and focus group guidelines. Pike also conducted all fieldwork and data collection in Lesotho and Kenya and was responsible for writing up the methods sections and most of the analyses on these countries in Interwoven. The report acknowledges several others for important contributions to specific sections and analyses. Notably, Raymond Robertson (Texas A&M) who was responsible for synthesizing quantitative and qualitative information from all four countries, and for producing a detailed write-up of the findings that speaks to the research question of how Better Work broadly improves job and life quality in the garment manufacturing sector.
