Survey questions : handcrafting the standardized questionnaire by Jean M Converse( Book )

39 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research has yielded many new clues about how survey questions "behave," and some of these findings have offered practical guidance for question writing. This volume reviews this experimental literature and provides both general guiding principles and specific advice on how to develop a survey questionnaire, emphasizing the practical implications of the experience and research of questionnaire designers. The authors also suggest a number of ways in which to make pilot and pretest work more fruitful. The material is easily accessible, yet professional. This volume should be useful to social scientists and others who design survey questionnaires
Questions and answers in attitude surveys : experiments on question form, wording, and context by Howard Schuman( Book )

44 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 1,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preguntas y respuestas constituye una sistematización de la metodología sobre formulación de preguntas en las encuestas de actitud y es considerada como una obra de referencia fundamental en este ámbito desde el año 1981, fecha en que se publicó por primera vez. Los análisis de Schuman y Presser muestran una sucesión de investigaciones realizadas tanto de forma teórica como experimental sobre una parte representativa de la población de EE. UU. a lo largo de varios años. Presentan los diferentes resultados que es posible obtener en las encuestas sobre aspectos de carácter subjetivo, denominadas por ellos mismos preguntas de actitud --ya sean sobre creencias o valores, entre otras cuestiones--, dependiendo de la forma de redac­ción y el planteamiento de las preguntas, el tipo de enunciado utilizado o el con­texto en que se encuadren, centrándose sobre todo en las preguntas relacionadas entre sí. A partir de esto se estudian los efectos particulares de esas variaciones en su aplicación en las encuestas de actitud y las consecuencias sobre los resul­tados. El planteamiento seguido se basa en la puesta en marcha de unos pocos experimentos para reutilizar los resultados obtenidos para la generación, el desarrollo y la aplicación de nuevos experimentos, teniendo siempre presentes los cambios de significado que pueden adoptar las preguntas utilizadas para las generaciones posteriores y la relevancia que ocupen en ese momento en la sociedad
Methods for testing and evaluating survey questionnaires by Stanley Presser( Book )

18 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written and edited by leading experts, this volume offers an overview of and solid foundation in up-to-date survey questionnaire issues, concerns, and responses. This work has been prepared in conjunction with an international conference on the topic (in November 2002) by the Survey Research Methods Section of the American Statistical Association, the American Association for Public Opinion Research, the International Association of Survey Statisticians, the Council of American Survey Research Organizations, and the Council of Marketing and Opinion Research. The book covers cognitive interviewing, interaction analysis, response latency, respondent debriefings, vignette analysis, split-sample comparisons, statistical modeling, mode of administration, and special populations. It also considers these topics in light of emerging techniques and technologies. The book's authors include more than two-dozen eminent professionals in a variety of fields related to survey methodology and questionnaire development. Many tables, figures, and references, as well as an extensive glossary, supplement the high quality discussion throughout the text

How social processes distort measurement : the impact of survey nonresponse on estimates of volunteer work in the United States by Katharine G Abraham( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Estimates of volunteering in the United States vary greatly from survey to survey and do not show the decline over time common to other measures of social capital. We argue that these anomalies are caused by the social processes that determine survey participation, in particular the propensity of people who do volunteer work to respond to surveys at higher rates than those who do not do volunteer work. Thus surveys with lower responses rates will usually have higher proportions of volunteers, and the decline in response rates over time likely has led to increasing overrepresentation of volunteers. We analyze data from the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) -- the sample for which is drawn from Current Population Survey (CPS) respondents -- together with data from the CPS Volunteering Supplement to demonstrate the effects of survey nonresponse on estimates of volunteering activity and its correlates. CPS respondents who become ATUS respondents report much more volunteering in the CPS than those who become ATUS nonrespondents. This difference is replicated within demographic and other subgroups. Consequently, conventional statistical adjustments for nonresponse cannot correct the resulting bias. Although nonresponse leads to estimates of volunteer activity that are too high, it generally does not affect inferences about the characteristics associated with volunteer activity. We discuss the implications of these findings for the study of other phenomena
Experiments in Question Wording, Form and Context in Attitude Surveys, 1971-1980 by Howard Schuman( )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data from over 200 experiments conducted in 34 different surveys are supplied in this collection. The experiments were designed to evaluate systematically the effects of question form, wording, and context. Experimental questions were constructed to explore the following topics: open vs. closed questions, "don't know" responses, response order, unbalanced questions vs. balancing attempts, agree-disagree items, attitude strength, attitude crystallization, tone of wording, question content, and question order
Family Interaction, Social Capital, and Trends in Time Use (FISCT), 1998-1999 : [United States] by John P Robinson( )

Americans, and (4) time spent on the Internet and effects on social isolation and other media usage. In addition to the estimates of time use obtained from the time diaries, the project elicited information on (1) marital and parental status, education and employment status of the respondent and spouse (if married), age, race/ethnicity, and family income, (2) weekly and previous-day recall estimates of time spent on paid employment, housework, religious activities, and television viewing, (3) feelings of time pressure, and (4) use of the Internet, e-mail, and home computers

Valuing oil spill prevention : a case study of California's central coast by Richard T Carson( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes what is arguably the first and only valuation study to meet in full the reference study standards set by NOAA's Blue Ribbon Panel on Contingent Valuation. This book documents a contingent valuation study for a generic environmental good: preventing the likely injuries from oil spills on the coast of Central California. It provides a wealth of materials which will reduce the long lead time which characterizes most economic damage assessments. This is achieved by so richly documenting the design, administration, and analysis of such studies as to be effectively a 'how-to' guide for undertaking state-of-the-art contingent valuation studies. The book is supported by a CD-ROM containing a wealth of additional material, including data, questionnaires, and transcripts. Together they constitute a unique and vital contribution to the literature concerning the valuation of non-market preferences
