The permanent flow of technological advancements, especially the Internet, presents an important driving force for the survey industry. This session is thus seeking papers that will contribute to the understanding of how the Internet is influencing the way we collect survey data. We are especially interested in papers that deal with data quality in Web surveys. Namely, Web surveys will complement (or even replace) some existent survey modes only when we show that data collected in this way are as reliable and valid as data collected by conventional survey modes.
We are looking for papers (but not limit to) that contribute to the evaluation, minimization, and correction of:
- non-response problem in Web surveys,
- non-coverage problem in Web surveys,
- measurement problem in Web surveys due to mode effect, questionnaire design and respondents themselves.
