Hanyu Sun; Angie Kistler; Ryan Hubbard; Brad Edwards; Marcia Swinson-Vick – Field Methods, 2024
There is abundant literature about interviewer effects on the survey process, but studies of interviewer training are quite limited. Previous research has produced mixed findings on how training affects interviewer performance. Trainings are often conducted in person despite the mixed findings. There has been no research that examines the use of…

Claudia Schmiedeberg; Jette Schröder – Field Methods, 2024
Although it has long been acknowledged that interviewers play a crucial role in the survey data collection process, there is little research concerning interviewer effects on how respondents perceive the interview. We investigate whether interviewer effects exist regarding how much respondents report having enjoyed the interview and whether these…

Alrik Thiem; Lusine Mkrtchyan – Field Methods, 2024
Qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) is an empirical research method that has gained some popularity in the social sciences. At the same time, the literature has long been convinced that QCA is prone to committing causal fallacies when confronted with non-causal data. More specifically, beyond a certain case-to-factor ratio, the method is…

Anais Roque; Amber Wutich; Alexandra Brewis; Melissa Beresford; Laura Landes; Olga Morales-Pate; Ramon Lucero; Wendy Jepson; Yushiou Tsai; Michael Hanemann – Field Methods, 2024
Community-based participant-observation purposefully combines participant-observation and community-based participatory research. While participant-observation is the core method of ethnography and foundational to cultural anthropology, community-based participatory research initially emerged from health and related applied sciences to align…

Estimating prescription medicine use is challenging due to recall bias associated with surveys and coverage bias in administrative data. This study assesses how making operational improvements and combining both survey and administrative data sources can increase data quality on filled prescriptions. We use data from the Medicare Current…

Kaylin R. Clements; Jennifer E. Cross; Christopher McCarty; Jennifer N. Solomon – Field Methods, 2024
Social network research often depends on the willingness of respondents to provide personal information about themselves and alters. Survey design strategies that increase willingness to share this information are necessary for social network research to be feasible, especially when name generators are used for sampling because rosters are…

Anthony S. DiStefano; Joshua S. Yang – Field Methods, 2024
Despite recent methodological advances in saturation, guidelines for its estimation in more complex research designs--such as ethnographic studies--have been lacking. We present an accessible, step-by-step approach to empirical assessment of data saturation, tested on a moderately sized ethnographic study with 109 combined direct observations and…

Laura Kawerau; Athena Birkenberg; Thomas Daum; Cosmas Alfred Butele; Regina Birner – Field Methods, 2024
Agricultural studies mainly rely on quantitative research approaches. Despite growing interest in and uptake of qualitative, participatory, and visual methods due to their perceived advantages in gathering in-depth information and empowering participants, visual-digital research methods have yet to be largely applied. In our study on adaptation…

Dana Garbarski; Jennifer Dykema; Cameron P. Jones; Tiffany S. Neman; Nora Cate Schaeffer; Dorothy Farrar Edwards – Field Methods, 2024
Ethnoracial identity refers to the racial and ethnic categories that people use to classify themselves and others. How it is measured in surveys has implications for understanding inequalities. Yet how people self-identify may not conform to the categories standardized survey questions use to measure ethnicity and race, leading to potential…

Prasanna S. Premkumar; Santhosh Kumar Ganesan; Balaji Pandiyan; Dhivya Kumari Krishnamoorthy; Gagandeep Kang – Field Methods, 2024
Household expenditure data is at the core of efforts to measure living standards, inequality and financial protection against illness. Currently it is mainly derived from recall-based surveys that are time consuming and prone to measurement errors. Diaries are often used as an alternative approach, however this results in fatigue and low…

Alice Kirsten Bosma – Field Methods, 2024
Emotions are omnipresent in any court of law. In this short take, I suggest applying the Articulated Thought in Simulated Situations (ATSS) paradigm as a useful addition to supplement methodologies like interviewing and observations. ATSS, which originated in social sciences to study cognitive--behavioral topics, can be easily adapted for use in…

Hooghe, Marc; Stiers, Dieter – Field Methods, 2023
When conducting a postal survey, a traditional recommendation is to use paper postage stamps instead of an automated postage system, to make sure that invitations have a more personal and attractive appearance. In this research note, we investigate whether this traditional recommendation is still valid. In the autumn of 2020, a postal survey was…

Quimby, Barbara; Beresford, Melissa – Field Methods, 2023
Participatory modeling (PM) is an engaged research methodology for creating analog or computer-based models of complex systems, such as socio-environmental systems. Used across a range of fields, PM centers stakeholder knowledge and participation to create more internally valid models that can inform policy and increase engagement and trust…

López, Daniel Jacobson; García, Antonio; Engel, Rafael; Jackson, John L., Jr. – Field Methods, 2023
There is a paucity of empirical literature examining the experiences of gay Latino sexual assault survivors in the United States, due in part because there is little research focused on how to effectively recruit and engage Latino sexual assault survivors as participants in the research process. While researchers have utilized various recruitment…

Adebayo, Kudus Oluwatoyin; Njoku, Emeka T. – Field Methods, 2023
How does shared identity between researcher and the researched influence trust-building for data generation and knowledge production? We reflect on this question based on two separate studies conducted by African-based researchers in sociology and political science in Nigeria. We advanced two interrelated positions. The first underscores the…
