Title Nonresponse Error and Mode Effects in the Web-Enabled Survey on Civic Attitudes and Behaviors after 9/11
Access date 20.04.2004
Abstract Using an RDD-recruited Web-enabled panel to collect survey data allows the convenience of quick-turnaround, self-administered Web data collection along with the reliability of probability sampling. However, nonresponse becomes a concern because respondents have the potential to drop out, avoid contact, or refuse at four different stages of participation: RDD recruitment, WebTV installation, panel initiation through response to a profile survey, and finally, response to each unique Web survey. A nonresponse follow-up study (NRFUS) that attempts to contact and gather data from refusers at each of the four stages can improve overall response rates, and potentially offers a means by which to evaluate nonresponse bias. However, since telephone contact is needed to reach nonrespondents who never accepted or hooked up the WebTV device, the mode of data collection differs for NRFUS respondents from those two stages of nonresponse. The result is that mode effects tend to confound any difference that may be attributed to nonresponse bias. By including an initial telephone sample of Web panel members, this study attempts to isolate mode effects from nonresponse bias to obtain a clearer picture of the effects of nonresponse at each stage of panel survey participation.
