Experimental change from paper-based interviewing to computer-assisted interviewing in the HILDA survey /

by Watson, Nicole | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Wilkins, Roger.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2011Description: PDF.Other title: HILDA project discussion paper series ; no. 2/11.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Bibliography pp. 28-29Summary: Most large-scale ongoing face-to-face surveys which began using pen and paper interviewing (PAPI) face an eventual shift to computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI). In preparation for such a shift in the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey, a trial of the CAPI collection mode was undertaken in the 2007 test sample. This involved a split-sample test of 764 households, where interviewers rather than households were randomly assigned to the PAPI or CAPI mode. This paper reports on the findings of this split sample test, both in terms of the fieldwork operations and the quality of the data collected. Apart from some concerns about the length of the interview, few differences were identified in the data collected by the two modes. Where CAPI differed from PAPI, it was generally in the direction thought to enhance data quality rather than reduce it.Availability: (1)

Poverty in Australia : listening to journalists. /

by Muller, Denis.

Publisher: Fitzroy Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2000Description: vi, 19 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2000Summary: It was agreed by all that economic distribution was unequal, but that this was an inevitable consequence of the unequal distribution of opportunity, native talent, intelligence, energy and good health. There were divergent views about whether it was reasonable to call this 'unfair'. The bottom line was, if the social consensus was to be preserved, people needed to believe that the have-nots were being cared about, particularly in a society like Australia where the gap between the haves and have-nots is growing. There was some concern about this. The One Nation phenomenon was cited as evidence that the social fabric was wearing thin in places.
