Lau, Charles Q.; Baker, Melissa; Fiore, Andrew; Greene, Diana; Lieskovsky, Min; Matu, Kim; Peytcheva, Emilia – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Survey researchers are increasingly concerned that the presence of other people (bystanders) may affect data quality in structured, face-to-face survey interviews. In this article, we study bystanders using data from 15,309 face-to-face surveys about technology from Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Brazil and Guatemala. Our analysis (1) describes the…
