Nonresponse in Household Interview Surveys

Publication Abstract

Groves, Robert M., and Mick P. Couper. 1998. Nonresponse in Household Interview Surveys. New York: Wiley.

The failure to sample people is a major threat to the statistical inference of surveys. Survey designers spend much effort creating surveys that will reduce the non-response rate. This book is the result of an eight year research program that collected unprecedented data sets on respondents and nonrespondents by matching these groups to the 1990 US census records.
