Collaborative Research: On Latent Class Models of Measurement Error

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Roger Tourangeau

This study will advance the knowledge about successful and efficient strategies for questionnaire development. It proposes a series of studies to investigate the use of latent class analysis (LCA) to assess questionnaire items. The LCA models can be used when two or more measures are available for the same latent class variable. The models can often be applied to extant data, since some surveys include multiple measures for key constructs and others routinely collect reinterview data. Surveys, and with them questionnaires, are used across many disciplines, some of which don't have access to large resources for questionnaire development and questionnaire testing. Finding a method that can draw knowledge about question performance from existing data (such as reinterview data) will be particularly useful.
