Verd, Joan Miquel; Barranco, Oriol; Lozares, Carlos – Field Methods, 2021
In this article, we present the benefits of blending the methodological characteristics of the focused ethnographic method (FEM) and case study research (CSR) for a study on auxiliary work processes in a hospital in Barcelona, Spain. We argue that incorporating CSR logic and principles in the FEM produces a better form of inquiry, as this…

Hsieh, Shu-Hui; Wa Lukusa, Martin Tshishimbi – Field Methods, 2021
In surveys, proportions of individuals self-reporting as bisexual and homosexual are likely to suffer from misreports or refusal to answer when directly questioned. For more reliable information, the randomized response technique is often used. Therefore, to reduce social desirability bias, a multi-level randomized response technique has been used…

Chin, Alycia; Couper, Mick P.; Beckett, Dustin – Field Methods, 2021
Longitudinal survey and experimental research is essential for understanding psychological and economic processes, but attrition is a concern. We examine attrition in a 2016 longitudinal randomized controlled trial of more than 13,000 prospective U.S. homeowners, in which participants were invited to up to seven online surveys delivered every two…

Marin, Alexandra; Dubash, Soli – Field Methods, 2021
As relationships change and people change the kinds of support they provide, name generators that collect information about ties that provide particular kinds of support at repeated points of time may not effectively capture ties that are active but whose roles have changed. This article shows that a significant minority of network members change…

Bimler, David; Uusküla, Mari – Field Methods, 2021
When informants from a given culture are asked to list items from a specified semantic domain, their lists provide two indicators of each term's prominence or salience: its frequency of appearance across lists and its mean position within the lists that include it. Smith et al. (1995), Sutrop (2001), and most recently Robbins et al. (2017) have…

Revilla, Melanie; Couper, Mick P.; Paura, Ezequiel; Ochoa, Carlos – Field Methods, 2021
Passive data from a tracking application (or "meter") installed on participants' devices to register the URLs visited have great potential for studying people's online activities. However, given privacy concerns, obtaining cooperation installing a meter can be difficult and lead to selection bias. Therefore, in this article, we address…

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…

Price, Heather E.; Smith, Christian – Field Methods, 2021
To identify the dominant cultural models among parents transmitting faith to their children, we find few methodological guidelines to guide coding and analysis of semi-structured interviews. We thus developed a three-phase procedure for our research team. Phase-one follows Campbell et al. by unitizing on meanings rather than words/pages, including…

Passmore, Susan R.; Jamison, Amelia M.; Abdelwadoud, Moaz; Rogers, Taylor B.; Wiggan, Morgan; Mullins, Daniel C.; Thomas, Stephen B. – Field Methods, 2021
To explore the willingness to participate in genomics research among African Americans, we developed a technique specifically suited to a relaxed social setting. The "Qualitative Story Deck," (QSD) is a gamified, structured elicitation technique that allows for the spontaneous creation of scenarios with variable attributes. We used the…

Naidoo, Sarita; Duby, Zoe; Hartmann, Miriam; Musara, Petina; Etima, Juliane; Woeber, Kubashni; Mensch, Barbara S.; der Straten, Ariane van; Montgomery, Elizabeth T. – Field Methods, 2021
Body mapping methods are used in sexual and reproductive health studies to encourage candid discussion of sex and sexuality, pleasure and pain, sickness and health, and to understand individuals' perceptions of their bodies. VOICE-D, a qualitative follow-up study to the VOICE trial, developed and used a body map tool in the context of individual…

Pham, Tony V. – Field Methods, 2021
Researchers based in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) often cannot access conventional but high-priced ethnographic tools. I developed a low-cost methodology as an exercise in meeting the needs of both LMIC-based researchers and the broader qualitative community. As demonstrated in this proof of concept, ethnographic researchers should…

Greenleaf, Abigail R.; Turke, Shani R.; Bazié, Fiacre; Sawadogo, Nathalie; Guiella, Georges; Moreau, Caroline – Field Methods, 2021
A growing body of literature in low- and middle-income countries is challenging the long-held assumption that the respondent and interviewer should be strangers. We conducted a qualitative study in Burkina Faso comprised of in-depth interviews and focus group discussions to explore interviewers' experiences of collecting data on sexual and…

Koster, Jeremy; Leckie, George; Aven, Brandy – Field Methods, 2020
The multilevel social relations model (SRM) is a commonly used statistical method for the analysis of social networks. In this article and accompanying supplemental materials, we demonstrate the estimation and interpretation of the SRM using Stat-JR software. Multiple software templates permit the analysis of different response types, including…

Bollig, Michael; Schnegg, Michael; Schwieger, Diego A. Menestrey – Field Methods, 2020
This article introduces ethnographic upscaling, an innovative procedure to explore and test hypotheses drawn from in-depth ethnographic findings in spatially continuous cases. The approach combines the strength of localized ethnographic descriptions with questionnaire-based regional surveys to study the distribution of ethnographic findings across…

Brenner, Philip S.; Cosenza, Carol; Fowler, Floyd J., Jr. – Field Methods, 2020
What subject lines and messages in an e-mailed invitation maximize cooperation for a web survey? Answering this question is ever more important as survey researchers increasingly turn to web surveys to reduce costs. We test respondents' preferences for subject lines and messages in an e-mailed invitation to participate in a Consumer Assessment of…
