This project collects new data and updates existing population and environmental data on rural and urban residents in the Brazilian Amazon region. New data include follow up surveys in Santarem, urban samples and satellite data for Altamira and Santarem, and a new study site in the epicenter of mechanized soybean expansion in the state of Mato Grosso, at Lucas do Rio Verde. This includes a complete set of data for the previous 30 years of change in the new study site. The resulting data make this the largest social survey carried out in the Amazon region, with more than 1,000 properties and more than 2,500 households, covering an area in excess of 10,000 square kilometers.
