Most widely held works by Andrew Dillon
Creation, use, and deployment of digital information by Herre van Oostendorp( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member 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

Explaining Variation in Child Labor Statistics by Andrew Dillon( )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member 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
Hypertext and cognition by Jean-François Rouet( )
3 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The recent evolution of western societies has been characterized by an increasing emphasis on information and communication. As the amount of available information increases, however, the user -- worker, student, citizen -- faces a new problem: selecting and accessing relevant information. More than ever it is crucial to find efficient ways for users to interact with information systems in a way that prevents them from being overwhelmed or simply missing their targets. As a result, hypertext systems have been developed as a means of facilitating the interactions between readers and text. In hy
Do labor statistics depend on how and to whom the questions are asked? results from a survey experiment in tanzania by Pieter Serneels( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Labor market statistics are critical for assessing and understanding economic development. In practice, widespread variation exists in how labor statistics are measured in household surveys in low-income countries. Little is known whether these differences have an effect on the labor statistics they produce. This paper analyzes these effects by implementing a survey experiment in Tanzania that varied two key dimensions: the level of detail of the questions and the type of respondent. Significant differences are observed across survey designs with respect to different labor statistics. Labor force participation rates, for example, vary by as much as 10 percentage points across the four survey assignments. Using a short labor module without screening questions on employment generates lower female labor force participation and lower rates of wage employment for both men and women. Response by proxy rather than self-report yields lower male labor force participation, lower female working hours, and lower employment in agriculture for men. The differences between proxy and self reporting seem to come from information imperfections within the household, especially with the distance in age between respondent and subject playing an important role, while gender and educational differences seem less important
