Nonresponse in Time: A Time Series Analysis of the Finnish Labour Force Survey

Abstract:
The relation between the response mechanism in the Finnish Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the indicators for both social and political changes as well as organisational aspects are examined in this study using time series models. I show that besides the changes in the social climate, organisational decisions can have substantial effects on survey participation. The findings are discussed and the implications are shown to be organisation specific.

Keywords:
Survey nonresponse, autoregressive model, time series
