Abstract The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), jointly with the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, plan to conduct an anonymous Internet-based survey to assess the use of bottled water, tap water and home water filtration systems. The survey will include questions about water perceptions, knowledge, reasons for bottled water or water filtration system use, and attendant costs. A phone version of the survey will also be developed to assess the same information. The survey questions were assessed in the CDC Questionnaire Design Research Laboratory using two study modes: a pilot Internet survey site and telephone-administered survey. After revision, the final Internet-based survey will be launched in 2003. In order to produce a brief and coherent survey instrument, the investigators had to combine the goals, language and theoretical constructs of the different supporting agencies dealing with hidden springs of unrecognized differences in bureaucratic settings. For example, the FDA asked questions about knowledge of regulations – questions that carried implicit assumptions of the public’s awareness of and trust in government’s role in water issues. Other questions in the draft instrument were intended to provide data for “Averting Behavior” analysis, a techniques used by EPA economists to measure “Willingness to Pay”. The questions ask respondents how much they pay for bottled or filtered water, and how much safer they think bottled or filtered water is than tap water. Bridging such assorted cognitive domains was challenging. This presentation will describe the findings of this multi-mode, multi-agency project.
