The latest computer assisted methods for survey research Computer assisted survey information collection (CASIC) methods arerapidly replacing traditional "paper and pencil" survey procedures.Researchers now apply computer technologies at every step of thesurvey process, from automating interviews and computerizing datacollection to data capture and preparation. CASIC techniques arereshaping today's survey research and methodology --and redefiningtomorrow's. Computer Assisted Survey Information Collection is the mostup-to-date and authoritative resource available on CASIC methodsand issues. Its comprehensive treatment provides the scope neededto evaluate past development and implementation of CASIC designs,to anticipate its future directions, and to identify new areas forresearch and development. Written in an array of evidentiary stylesby more than 60 leading CASIC practitioners from numerousdisciplines, this coherently organized volume: * Covers CASIC development and its integration into existingdesigns and organizations * Discusses instrument development and design * Examines survey design issues, including the incorporation ofexperiments * Discusses case management of automated survey systems * Evaluates training and supervision of computer assistedinterviewers * Reviews self-administered surveys, including optically scannablemail surveys * Considers emerging technologies, such as voice recognition,pen-CASIC, and the Web as a data collection tool. Supplemented with copious tables, figures, and references as wellas an extensive glossary, Computer Assisted Survey InformationCollection provides a solid foundation in CASIC for seasonedresearch-survey practitioners and graduate students across a broadspectrum of social science disciplines.

Taking into account both traditional and emerging modes, this comprehensive new Handbook covers all major methodological and statistical issues in designing and analyzing surveys. With contributions from the world's leading survey methodologists and statisticians, this invaluable new resource provides guidance on collecting survey data and creating meaningful results. Featuring examples from a variety of countries, the book reviews such things as how to deal with sample designs, write survey questions, and collect data on the Internet. A thorough review of the procedures associated with multiple modes of collecting sample survey information and applying that combination of methods that fit the situation best is included. The International Handbook of Survey Methodology opens with the foundations of survey design, ranging from sources of error, to ethical issues. This is followed by a section on design that reviews sampling challenges and tips on writing and testing questions for multiple methods. Part three focuses on data collection, from face-to-face interviews, to Internet and interactive voice response, to special challenges involved in mixing these modes within one survey. Analyzing data from both simple and complex surveys is then explored, as well as procedures for adjusting data. The book concludes with a discussion of maintaining quality. Intended for advanced students and researchers in the behavioral, social, and health sciences, this "must have" resource will appeal to those interested in conducting or using survey data from anywhere in the world, especially those interested in comparing results across countries. The book also serves as a state-of-the-art text for graduate level courses and seminars on survey methodology. A companion website contains additional readings and examples.

In conjunction with top survey researchers around the world and with Nielsen Media Research serving as the corporate sponsor, the Encyclopedia of Survey Research Methods presents state-of-the-art information and methodological examples from the field of survey research. Although there are other "how-to" guides and references texts on survey research, none is as comprehensive as this Encyclopedia, and none presents the material in such a focused and approachable manner. With more than 600 entries, this resource uses a Total Survey Error perspective that considers all aspects of possible survey error from a cost-benefit standpoint.

The Second Edition of Designing Surveys: A Guide to Decisions and Procedures accounts for changes in telephone, Internet, and email surveying and provides a more comprehensive treatment on questionnaire testing. Despite changing technologies, however, the principles of scientific survey design remain unchanged, including the selection of the sample, the writing of questions to solicit an unbiased response, and the ethical treatment of human subjects. This new edition addresses these issues in the context of new and emerging technologies and their relationship to survey design and the social sciences. Designing Surveys provides an accurate account of how modern survey research is actually conducted, but with the needs and goals of a novice researcher in mind.
