The book presents a cognitive approach to questionnaire design and includes timely information on the Internet and electronic resources.

Side by side: integrated neighborhoods in America by Norman M Bradburn( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports the results of a study on the characteristics of racially integrated neighborhoods in an attempt to discover whether, and under what conditions, blacks and whites can live together. The communities studied had anywhere from one or two black families to more than ten percent. Integrated rural areas mostly in the South were not given as much attention as urban areas. Data were collected by interviewing neighborhood leaders and residents. In presenting the findings, the book first focuses on the profiles of six neighborhoods that represent the many others studied. Then, statistical estimates of the extent of integrated housing are given; in most cases, the whites far outnumber the blacks. White hostility toward black residents and demographic differences in the neighborhoods are analyzed. Racial attitudes and the participation in community institutions (schools, churches, etc.) are examined. In particular, the development and support of integrated schools are described. (Authors/JW)

Social information processing and survey methodology by Hans-J Hippler( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Survey researchers have long been aware that the way in which questions are asked determines the obtained responses. However, the exact processes that mediate response effects remained elusive. In the present volume, cognitive psychologists and survey methodologists explore the cognitive processes that underlie respondents' answers to survey questions. The contributors provide an introduction to information processing theories for survey researchers, review current knowledge of response effects in the light of recent theorizing in cognitive psychology, and report a number of experimental studies on question context and question wording. In combination, the chapters provide a theoretical framework for the analysis of response effects in surveys and raise a number of applied and theoretical issues that have so far not been addressed in cognitive psychology

Context effects in social and psychological research by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

0 e The contributors to this book review our current knowledge of context effects in survey research, psychological testing, and social judgement. Drawing on recent developments in cognitive psychology, they offer theoretical accounts of the conditions that lead to the emergence of various context effects and report a number of new experimental studies. At stake now are clear, practical needs in the structuring of reliable tests, and a strong interest to develop a coherent theoretical framework to assess and scrutinize context effects, in addition to the desire to align some of the findings in survey research studies with the discoveries made in the information-processing field. This book attests to a fruitful dialogue between cognitive psychologists and survey researchers, as the cognitive processes initiated by question probes are really beginning to be understood and context effects classified and differentiated
