Collaborative Research: Motivated Underreporting

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Roger Tourangeau

The proposed project will advance the field’s knowledge about the sources of and possible remedies for three related forms of measurement error that are common in large-scale national surveys: (1) Errors in responses to screening questions—that is, questions designed to assess eligibility for the survey, (2) errors in responses to filter questions that lead to one or more follow-up items, and (3) errors in responses to questions that administered repeatedly in panel surveys. All three forms of measurement errors affect population estimates on key statistics spanning a wide range of topics, such as crime victimization, consumer purchases, and health. Our goal is to understand the source of these errors and to propose practical steps for reducing them.

Funding Period: 10/01/2009 to 09/30/2012
