Abstract

I conducted a qualitative analysis of mitigation banks in southern California, and from interviews with nine individuals associated with the banks or with mitigation tools, reveal the overall lack of cohesive understanding of the purpose and integrity of mitigation banks. This reveals the uncertainty in banking but also presents an opportunity to make recommendations on improvements to this prominent tool. This analysis also lends support to The Wildlands Conservancy as they establish their Sacred Lands Network, an alternative to mitigation banking. This dataset contains three .csv files: Bankers Groups' Coding_Declassified, Individuals Groups' Coding_Declassified, and RCD MWD Groups' Coding Declassified. The .csv files contain two tabs: descriptive coding and major bins. The descriptive codes were developed from the in vivo codes of the original interview transcript. These are organized according to participant and question they answer. The major bins are the pattern codes that arose for each participant and a brief code is listed below that gave rise to that pattern code. 

Methods

This dataset was collected through interviews, the review of interview transcripts, and the in vivo codes that were contained within. 

For ease, this dataset also contains the .csv file, Interview_Questions. This file contains the interview questions. 

Usage Notes

This dataset is declassified in order to protect the privacy of the participants. Information that was removed was replaced with "###." Participant names are pseudonyms.
