Survey methodology by Robert M Groves( Book )

27 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two decades, survey research has evolved significantly. Survey Methodology describes the basic principles of survey design discovered in methodological research over recent years and offers guidance for making successful decisions in the design and execution of high quality surveys. Written by six nationally recognized experts in the field, this book covers the major considerations in designing and conducting a sample survey. Topical, accessible, and succinct, this book represents the state of the science in survey methodology. Employing the "total survey error" paradigm as an organizing framework, it merges the science of surveys with state-of-the-art practices. End-of-chapter terms, references, and exercises enhance its value as a reference for practitioners and as a text for advanced students."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Nonresponse in household interview surveys by Robert M Groves( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive framework for both reduction of nonresponse and postsurvey adjustment for nonresponse. This book provides guidance and support for survey statisticians who need to develop models for postsurvey adjustment for nonresponse, and for survey designers and practitioners attempting to reduce unit nonresponse in household interview surveys. It presents the results of an eight-year research program that has assembled an unprecedented data set on respondents and nonrespondents from several major household surveys in the United States. Within a comprehensive conceptual framework of influences on nonresponse, the authors investigate every aspect of survey cooperation, from the influences of household characteristics and social and environmental factors to the interaction between interviewers and householders and the design of the survey itself. Nonresponse in Household Interview Surveys: * Provides a theoretical framework for understanding and studying household survey nonresponse * Empirically explores the individual and combined influences of several factors on nonresponse * Presents chapter introductions, summaries, and discussions on practical implications to clarify concepts and theories * Supplies extensive references for further study and inquiry. Nonresponse in Household Interview Surveys is an important resource for professionals and students in survey methodology/research methods as well as those who use survey methods or data in business, government, and academia. It addresses issues critical to dealing with nonresponse in surveys, reducing nonresponse during survey data collection, and constructing statistical compensations for the effects of nonresponse on key survey estimates
Ensuring the quality, credibility, and relevance of U.S. justice statistics by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) of the U.S. Department of Justice is one of the smallest of the U.S. principal statistical agencies but shoulders one of the most expansive and detailed legal mandates among those agencies. Ensuring the Quality, Credibility, and Relevance of U.S. Justice Statistics examines the full range of BJS programs and suggests priorities for data collection. BJS's data collection portfolio is a solid body of work, well justified by public information needs or legal requirements and a commendable effort to meet its broad mandate given less-than-commensurate fiscal resources. The book identifies some major gaps in the substantive coverage of BJS data, but notes that filling those gaps would require increased and sustained support in terms of staff and fiscal resources. In suggesting strategic goals for BJS, the book argues that the bureau's foremost goal should be to establish and maintain a strong position of independence. To avoid structural or political interference in BJS work, the report suggests changing the administrative placement of BJS within the Justice Department and making the BJS directorship a fixed-term appointment. In its thirtieth year, BJS can look back on a solid body of accomplishment; this book suggests further directions for improvement to give the nation the justice statistics -- and the BJS -- that it deserves

Detroit Area Study, 1996 : Social Interaction and Survey Participation by Donald Deskins( )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this survey, respondents from three counties in the Detroit, Michigan, area were queried about their social attitudes, racial attitudes, religion, community participation, and personal interactions. With respect to social attitudes, respondents' views were elicited on education, taxes, community service, participating in surveys, and privacy issues. Other questions closely examined respondents' attitudes toward African Americans in the Detroit area. Those queried were also asked to name community organizations they belonged to, and to list where in the Detroit area they went for shopping, medical care, entertainment, and recreation. Additional questions asked for detailed educational background information, religious attitudes, and place of worship. Background information includes marital status, employment, political orientation, and income

Planning and development of the continuous National Survey of Family Growth( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report describes the design and planning work for the transition to continuous interviewing in the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), and the procedures used in fieldwork operations. A subsequent report will describe response rates and other results of the data collection. The substantive content of the continuous NSFG is very similar to the most recent periodic NSFG (conducted in 2002). However, the methodology and management of the continuous survey is a significant departure from the previous periodic survey methodology. So this initial report describes how the survey was planned, what its objectives were, and the overall concepts and procedures for carrying out and managing the survey fieldwork. This report is being released before the public-use data file so that researchers will have the necessary background to understand the data when the data file is released. After each data file is released from this new design, a new report will include specific updates, including response rates and further details of the data collection results. In this way, users of the data will have more of the information they need in a timelier manner. The information in this report should be useful to at least two types of readers. First, researchers who wish to use the NSFG public-use data files may want to know more about how the NSFG was actually conducted, and why, and how its conduct may affect their plans for analyses of the data. Second, the information presented here may also be useful to those interested in survey methodology, and whose surveys might benefit from the approaches used in the continuous NSFG. Recognizing that the report may be read by persons with varying backgrounds, Appendix I defines a number of technical terms used in this report. The report begins with a brief history of the NSFG as a periodic survey conducted six times between 1973 and 2002. The report also explains the limitations of the periodic design that was used during those years, with fieldwork carried out every 6 to 7 years in more than 100 areas all at once. The new continuous design was meant to adapt to a new, and less favorable, environment for in-person household surveys. The central goal of the NSFG design remained the same: interviewing a large, nationally representative sample of men and women 15-44 years of age, in person, in English and Spanish. The continuous design attempts to attain that goal with greater cost-efficiency and greater control over sample size, data quality, and cost through the use of a more efficient sample design, and extensive use of paradata to make real-time management of interviewer effort possible."--Page i

The purpose of this study was to measure criminal activity in the United States based on survey reports of crime victims. In the study two different questionnaire forms were used in order to assess which provided better responses. One form was very lengthy and asked detailed questions about each household, person, and incident. The second form was much shorter and asked very generalized questions. The data collection was an attempt to find alternative methods of sampling, interviewing, designing questionnaires, managing data, and reporting results. Detailed information is provided on household characteristics and other characteristics of the respondents, as well as on crime incidents, including burglary, vandalism, assault, and rape
