Social Survey Data on Water Resources in Five Seward Peninsula Inupiaq Communities


The data were collected using a social survey approach in cooperation with five rural Inupiaq communities on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska. A questionnaire survey was used during a semi-structured interview. Interview questions included a series of questions about the respondent's use of water in the village (natural water sources used, use of a municipal water source if present), their perception of the quality and quantity of those water sources, and their perception of change in those water sources over the period of time with which they had familiarity with the water source. Individuals were asked what their perception of change in the quality and availability (quantity) of community water sources was. Water sources referred typically included the municipal supply (present in two of the five villages) and the major river or creek used by the village.
