Nonresponse and Measurement Error in Mixed Mode Designs

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   James M. Lepkowski

Among the most important decisions in terms of these costs and errors that survey researchers can make is the mode of administration. Often, modes that are the most expensive have the most favorable error properties; as costs increase, error often decreases. Increasingly, multiple modes are used to reduce errors while containing costs. The American Community Survey (ACS) uses multiple modes to increase response rates, presumably reducing nonresponse bias. This study will examine different kinds of mixed mode designs similar to the ACS with respect to nonresponse bias, measurement error, and cost (Census Dissertation Fellowship topics B1 and G).
