Publication Abstract

Download PDF versionKirgis, Nicole, and James M. Lepkowski. 2010. "A Management Model for Continuous Data Collection: Reflections from the National Survey of Family Growth, 2006-2010." NSFG Paper No. 10-011. June 2010.

Continuous data collection in the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) means on-going sampling of the US age-eligible household population such that interviewing and data production occur daily, with changes in questionnaires and sampling areas undertaken annually. This design seeks to maximize the use of resources and obtain high-quality responses by (1) producing a balanced, continuous work flow, (2) using a small, cross-trained project team, and (3) monitoring data collection in real time to make adjustments to the design. This paper summarizes some of the key design and management strategies used in the successful operation of the NSFG, 2006-2010, highlighting sampling strategies, paradata monitoring techniques, and responsive design initiatives.

Country of focus: United States of America.
