Title The effect of conditioning when re-interviewing
Year 2006
Access date 13.05.2013

A typology of panel conditioning effects and an empirical study examining the phenomenon are presented. The experiment on panel conditioning using a typical tracking study questionnaire shows that high frequency repeat interviews lead to a small degree of conditioning but low frequency repeat interviews seem to have no or very marginal effects. The study indicates the need for Panel Management Rule Books on repeat interviewing to be empirically based.
