On the Mode of Administering a Questionnaire and Responses to Open-Ended Items.
Groves, Robert M.
Social Science Research, v7 n3 p257-71 Sep 1978, Sep78
Personal and telephone surveys are compared to measure differences between the modes for identical questions. Speed of questioning is greater in telephone interviews, and so open-ended items in telephone interviews yield shorter answers. Reduced responses are disproportionately exhibited by younger, affluent respondents, who often provide detailed responses in personal interviews. (Author/KR)
