Park, Yoosung; Tsuchiya, Takahiro – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2021
While many studies examine tools and techniques to improve survey response rates, it remains unclear as to which are effective, and response rates continue to decline. In this study, we examine the effect of four variables expected to influence mail survey response rates: (1) the use of semi-transparent envelopes versus ordinary paper envelopes…

Bastian, Kevin C.; Sun, Min; Lynn, Heather – Journal of Teacher Education, 2021
Surveys of teacher preparation program (TPP) completers have become one widely used measure for program accountability and improvement, yet there is little evidence as to whether perceptions of preparation experiences predict the workforce outcomes of teachers. In the present study, we use statewide completer survey data from North Carolina to…

Sarac, Melike; Koc, Ismet – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2021
In data collection process of Turkey Demographic and Health Surveys (TDHSs), only printed questionnaire in Turkish is used. Therefore, on-the-spot translation was performed during the data collection process, rather than using printed questionnaires in Kurdish or Arabic. From the item-level nonresponse perspective, this study examines the quality…

Previous studies suggest that refusals form the largest proportion of nonresponse for household surveys. As face-to-face household health surveys are uncommon in several countries, it might be advantageous for prospective surveys to preemptively tackle respondents' refusal to survey participation. Using contact history data from the Saudi National…

Lipsey, Nikolette; Shepperd, James – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2021
Student evaluations of teaching (SETs) can provide valuable assessment information. However, online administration of SETs has corresponded with lower SET completion rates. We examined perceptions of strategies for increasing SET completion rates and the effect of offering psychological prompts (completion goals, reminders, progress feedback) and…

Griggs, Ashley K.; Smith, Amanda C.; Berzofsky, Marcus E.; Lindquist, Christine; Krebs, Christopher; Shook-Sa, Bonnie – Field Methods, 2021
The proportion of web survey responses submitted from mobile devices such as smartphones is increasing steadily. This trend presents new methodological challenges because mobile responses are often associated with increased breakoffs, which, in turn, can increase nonresponse bias. Using data from a survey of college students with more than 20,000…

Cheng, Albert; Zamarro, Gema; Orriens, Bart – Sociological Methods & Research, 2020
Unit nonresponse in panel data sets is often a source of bias. Why certain individuals attrite from longitudinal studies and how to minimize this phenomenon have been examined by researchers. However, this research has typically focused on data sets collected via telephone, postal mail, or face-to-face interviews. Moreover, this research usually…

Stanley, Marshica; Roycroft, Jessica; Amaya, Ashley; Dever, Jill A.; Srivastav, Anup – Field Methods, 2020
Previous research has shown that increasing the size of incentives can increase response rates for probability-based, cross-sectional surveys. However, the effects of incentives on web panels have not been extensively studied. We sought to answer the question: What is the effect of larger, postpaid incentives on (1) response, (2) data quality, and…

Kianersi, Sina; Luetke, Maya; Jules, Reginal; Rosenberg, Molly – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Bias may be introduced in survey data collection when participants answer questions differently depending on interviewer gender. This could affect the validity of collected data, especially sensitive data. Using sexual behavior data collected in a 2017-2018 cross-sectional survey of Haitian women (n = 304), we evaluated the associations between…

Internet surveys of American Evaluation Association (AEA) members are a common method for studying evaluation practice. Response rates obtained from Internet surveys of AEA members are, however, frequently very small. To investigate whether or not material incentives increase response rates to Internet surveys of AEA members, a between-subjects…
