Title Web Survey Nonresponse Among Military Members
Author Caplan, J. R.

Abstract As the Department of Defense begins a new program of Web-based surveys of military members, it plans to look carefully to minimize the effects of response bias. Since access to the Web is highest among senior officers attached to headquarters, DoD must make sure that the attitudes and opinions of individuals with less access are adequately represented. A new research study is underway that will examine the sources and frequencies of nonresponse and attempt to distinguish between the attitudes of intentional and unintentional nonrespondents. Intentional nonrespondents are sample members who are informed, and aware of the survey but who chose not to respond. Unintentional nonrespondents are either uninformed or unable to respond. The actual survey will be fielded in July, 2002. The presentation will look at the detailed research design and the specific categories of nonresponse that will be tracked along with nonresponse results from previous surveys. Methods of improving response rates will be considered and a portion of the nonrespondents will be invited to complete either a paper version of the survey or a short nonresponse survey. In addition, the nonresponse survey will be administered to individuals who call the 800 number to seek assistance. Discussion will center on differences in privacy/confidentiality, Web survey, and mode.
