Most widely held works by Robert M Groves
Ensuring the quality, credibility, and relevance of U.S. justice statistics by National Research Council (U.S.)( )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,165 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
Survey methodology by Robert M Groves( Book )
29 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 891 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

Planning and development of the continuous National Survey of Family Growth ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 282 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." - p. i

National crime surveys redesign data : Peoria record check study by Robert M Groves( Book )
3 editions published in 1987 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
