Responsive Design for Efficient Survey Data Collection: An Education Program

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Brady T. West, William G. Axinn, James Wagner

Survey research is a ubiquitous research methodology used in the social, behavioral, and health sciences to make inferences about specific populations. Unfortunately, many of the investigators conducting research in these fields of study have not benefited from rigorous training in the newest scientific approaches to the collection of survey data, and this lack of exposure to important developments in survey methodology can lead to inefficient data collection practices and reduced data quality. This project will develop and implement an organic research education program that will provide participants with exposure to state-of-the-art developments in survey methodology and practical tools for improving their survey data collection activities.

Funding Period: 09/14/2016 to 05/31/2021
