Abstract Computer assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) is a new data collection procedure that is under development, evaluation and use in several survey research organizations. Many private survey organizations (Shanks (1983)) have developed CATI systems. In the U.S. some of the major federal statistical agencies are developing, testing and implementing CATI. This paper describes the Statistical Reporting Service's CATI system, summarizes a comparison of CATI and conventional telephone data collection, discusses the impact of CATI on interviewers and outlines the implementation plan for CATI in the Statistical Reporting Service.
