The Estimation of Instrument Effects on Data Quality in the Consumer Expenditure Diary Survey
Abstract:The study reported here examines the effects of procedural variations on non-sampling errors. Measures of errors due to both response and item nonresponse are created from information contained within the survey itself. A method for combining these measures into a single data quality indicator is illustrated. Important interactions between diary procedure and respondent characteristics are found.
Keywords:Response error; item non-response; latent structure analysis; data quality; age effects.
