Most widely held works by Andrew Dillon
Creation, use, and deployment of digital information ( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 783 libraries worldwide
"The aim of this volume is to present results of scientific research on how digital information should be designed and how artifacts or systems containing digital content should maximize usability. This book also explains how context can influence the nature and effectiveness of digital communication." "The issue of what digital information actually is will be covered from a philosophical standpoint, a cognitive, and a technical one. The book has much to offer to academics in many disciplines, including Science, Arts, Psychology, Education and Information and Computing Sciences."--BOOK JACKET.

Designing usable electronic text by Andrew Dillon ( Book )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 331 libraries worldwide
"Poor design and a failure to consider the user often act against the effectiveness in online communication. Designing Usable Electronic Text, Second Edition explores the human issues that underlie information usage and stresses that usability is the main barrier to the electronic medium's campaign to gain mass acceptance. The book is a revision of the successful First Edition with a new emphasis on the Web and hypertext design and their impacts. With the emergence of new uses of information, suc ..."

Explaining Variation in Child Labor Statistics ( )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Child labor statistics are critical for assessing the extent and nature of child labor activities in developing countries. In practice, widespread variation exists in how child labor is measured. Questionnaire modules vary across countries and within countries over time along several dimensions, including respondent type and the structure of the questionnaire. Little is known about the effect of these differences on child labor statistics. This paper presents the results from a randomized survey experiment in Tanzania focusing on two survey aspects: different questionnaire design to classify children work and proxy response versus self-reporting. Use of a short module compared with a more detailed questionnaire has a statistically significant effect, especially on child labor force participation rates, and, to a lesser extent, on working hours. Proxy reports do not differ significantly from a childÖ's self-report. Further analysis demonstrates that survey design choices affect the coefficient estimates of some determinants of child labor in a child labor supply equation. The results suggest that low-cost changes to questionnaire design to clarify the concept of work for respondents can improve the data collected.

Measuring child labor Comparisons between hours data and subjective measures by Andrew Dillon ( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This paper examines a subjective measure of child labor as an alternative to hours data for eliciting the distribution of children's time between work, school, and leisure. The subjective child labor questions that were developed have two primary advantages. First, the subjective measures avoid proxy respondent bias in child labor reports made by parents in a standard hours module. Second, the subjective child labor module scales responses to elicit the relative distribution of the shares of children's time without relying on hours data which are prone to severe outlier problems. Adult, proxy respondents are found to produce uniformly lower reports of children's time allocated to work and school than the child's own subjective responses. Conditional labor supply functions are also estimated to examine the marginal effects of child, parent, household and school characteristics between the two types of data. Children's subjective responses are found to increase the magnitude of the marginal effects for child's age, parental education, and school availability with limited differences between household composition and asset variables." --from authors' abstract.
