Better ways to address nonresponse in social surveys
Researchers and statistical institutes are implementing many approaches to restore the response levels of social surveys. Improving their use of other data sources, leveraging several modes of contact and collection and follow-up, as well as redesigning content and communications all serve to meet this challenge. Given the increased willingness to share personal (health, tracking) data arising from the pandemic, offset by the greater volume of surveys that seek our attention, our attitudes and willingness to participate in surveys have shifted further from the old assumptions. At this session, the speakers will share their perspectives from different parts of the world to address nonresponse in social surveys.
