Standard Definitions is a work in progress; this is the seventh major edition. The American Association for Public Opinion Research plans to continue updating it, adding omparable definitions for other modes of data collection and making other refinements. AAPOR also is working with other organizations to further the widespread adoption and utilization of Standard Definitions. AAPOR is seeking the cooperation of companies that provide computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) software. Some of these companies already have agreed to incorporate the definitions and formula into their software reports. AAPOR also is asking academic journals to use AAPOR standards in their evaluation and publication of articles; several, including Public Opinion Quarterly and the International Journal of Public Opinion Research, already have agreed to do so.
