Survey organizations continuously develop innovative and complex data collection designs, which in these increasingly difficult economic times have to be implemented as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. This paper describes how we use the built-in capabilities of the Blaise programming suite, both out of the box and integrated with custom-built applications, to meet this challenge. We also explain our plans to expand our use of Blaise in order to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of information technology (IT) and the impact it can have on our future data collection efforts.
