Gauly, Britta; Daikeler, Jessica; Gummer, Tobias; Rammstedt, Beatrice – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
One question frequently included in surveys asks about respondents' earnings. As this information serves, for example, as a basis for evaluating policy interventions, it must be of high quality. This study aims to advance knowledge about possible measurement errors in earnings data and the potential of data linkage to improve substantive…

Such rating scales can offer odd numbers of points, meaning that they have explicit middle alternatives, or they can offer even numbers of points, omitting the middle alternative. By examining four types of questions in six national or regional telephone surveys,…

Corple, Danielle J.; Linabary, Jasmine R. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Many ethical concerns in online big data research stem from a pervasive assumption that data are disembodied and place-less. While some scholars have begun addressing the ethical dilemmas of big data, few offer approaches or tools that fully grapple with the situatedness of online data and its ethical implications. We draw on feminist new…

Kianersi, Sina; Luetke, Maya; Jules, Reginal; Rosenberg, Molly – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020

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…

Lingwood, Jamie; Levy, Rachael; Billington, Josie; Rowland, Caroline – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
The fact that many sub-populations do not take part in research, especially participants from lower socioeconomic (SES) backgrounds, is a serious problem in education research. To increase the participation of such groups we must discover what social, economic and practical factors prevent participation, and how to overcome these barriers. In the…

Santiago de Roock, Roberto – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Analysis of social action has increasingly considered the place of 'things' in recent years, including seeing objects (both physical and digital) as co-participants in social interaction, systems, and the research process. This article argues that video ethnography is well positioned to address such considerations including, with some…
