  • Conditional Pop-up Reminders Reduce Incidence of Rounding in Web Surveys

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rainer Schnell, Sarah Redlich, Anja S. Göritz
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Frequency of behaviors or amounts of variables of interest are essential topics in many surveys. The use of heuristics might cause rounded answers, resulting in the increased occurrence of end-digits (called heaping or digit-preference). For web surveys (or CASI), we propose using a conditional prompt as input validation if digits indicating heaping are entered. We report an experiment, where respondents in an online access panel (n = 2,590) were randomly assigned to one of three groups: (1) no input validation; (2) conditional input validation if rounding was presumed; and (3) input validation every time a numerical value was entered. Conditional input validation reduces heaping for variables with high proportions of heaped values. Unconditional input validation seems to be less effective.

      Authors: Yali Liu, Louisa Buckingham
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      To date, research on elite interviews has primarily focused on political or business settings in European and Anglo-American contexts. In this study, we examine the procedures involved in conducting elite interviews in academic settings, drawing on fieldwork with 53 senior scholars at 10 universities across five regions of northern China. We provide a detailed, critically reflective account of strategies to gain access, develop trust, and manage the power imbalance. Our account reveals the importance of the researcher’s professional identity in gaining participants’ trust and determining adequate forms of reciprocity.

  • The Devil Is in the Details: A Randomized Experiment Assessing the Effect
           of Providing Examples in a Survey Question across Countries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Eva Aizpurua, Gianmaria Bottoni, Rory Fitzgerald
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Despite the widespread use of examples in survey questions, very few studies have examined their impact on survey responses, and the evidence is mainly based on data collected in the United States using questionnaires in English. This study builds on previous research by examining the effects of providing examples using data from a cross-national probability-based web panel implemented in Estonia (n = 730), Great Britain (n = 685), and Slovenia (n = 529) during Round 8 of the European Social Survey (2017/18). Respondents were randomly assigned a survey question measuring confidence in social media using Facebook and Twitter as examples, or another condition in which no examples were offered. The results show that confidence in social media was significantly lower in the example condition, although the effect size was small. Confidence in social media varied across countries, and the effect of providing examples was heterogeneous across countries and education levels. The implications of these findings are discussed.

  • Improving Sampling Probability Definitions with Predictive Algorithms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Matthew Jannetti, Amy Carroll-Scott, Erikka Gilliam, Irene Headen, Maggie Beverly, Félice Lê-Scherban
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Place-based initiatives often use resident surveys to inform and evaluate interventions. Sampling based on well-defined sampling frames is important but challenging for initiatives that target subpopulations. Databases that enumerate total population counts can produce overinclusive sampling frames, resulting in costly outreach to ineligible participants. Quantifying eligibility before sampling using machine learning algorithms can improve efficiency and reduce costs. We developed a model to improve sampling for the West Philly Promise Neighborhood’s biennial population-representative survey of households with children within a geographic footprint. This study proposes a method to estimate probability of study eligibility by building a well-calibrated predictive model using existing administrative data sources. Six machine-learning models were evaluated; logistic regression provided the best balance of accuracy and understandable probabilities. This approach can be a blueprint for other population-based studies whose sampling frames cannot be well defined using traditional sources.

  • Effects of Question Characteristics on Item Nonresponse in Telephone and
           Web Survey Modes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Oliver Lipps, Gian-Andrea Monsch
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Telephone surveys face more and more criticism because of decreasing coverage and increasing costs, and the risk of producing socially desirable answers. Consequently, survey administrators consider switching their surveys to the web mode, although the web mode is more susceptible to item nonresponse. Still, we do not know whether this is true for all question types. In this article, we analyze to what extent item nonresponse depends on question characteristics such as their form or difficulty in the telephone and the web mode. We use data from an experiment in which individuals randomly sampled from a population register are experimentally assigned to these two modes. Distinguishing effects on the frequency of don’t know responses, item refusals, and mid-scale responding, we find more don’t know responses and item refusals for the web mode generally, but no differences for mid-scale responding. However, this relationship depends on the characteristics of the question.

  • Ethnographic Methods for Identifying Cultural Concepts of Distress:
           Developing Reliable and Valid Measures

      Authors: Jeffrey G. Snodgrass, Alexandra Brewis, H. J. François Dengah, William W. Dressler, Bonnie N. Kaiser, Brandon A. Kohrt, Emily Mendenhall, Seth Sagstetter, Lesley J. Weaver, Katya X. Zhao
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      We review ethnographic methods that allow researchers to assess distress in a culturally sensitive manner. We begin with an overview of standardized biomedical and psychological approaches to assessing distress cross-culturally. We then focus on literature describing the development of reliable and valid culturally sensitive assessment tools that can serve as complements or alternatives to biomedical categories and diagnostic frameworks. The methods we describe are useful in identifying forms of suffering—expressed in culturally salient idioms of distress—that might be misidentified by biomedical classifications. We highlight the utility of a cognitive anthropological theoretical approach for developing measures that attend to local cultural categories of knowledge and experience. Attending to cultural insider perspectives is necessary because expressions of distress, thresholds of tolerance for distress, expectations about stress inherent in life, conceptions of the good life, symptom expression, and modes of help-seeking vary across cultures.

           Computer-assisted Personal Interview Instruments: A Case Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Catherine Billington, Gonzalo Rivero, Andrew Jannett, Jiating (Kristin) Chen
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      During data collection, field interviewers often append notes or comments to a case in open text fields to request updates to case-level data. Processing these comments can improve data quality, but many are non-actionable, and processing remains a costly manual task. This article presents a case study using a novel application of machine learning tools to assist in the evaluation of these comments. Using over 5,000 comments from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, we built features that were fed to a machine learning model to predict a grouping category for each comment as previously assigned by data technicians to expedite processing. The model achieved high top-3 accuracy and was incorporated into a production tool for editing. A qualitative evaluation of the tool also provided encouraging results. This application of machine learning tools allowed a small but worthwhile increase in processing efficiency, while maintaining exacting standards for data quality.

  • Challenges and Opportunities to Recruiting and Engaging with Gay Male
           Latino Sexual Assault Survivors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Daniel Jacobson López, Antonio García, Rafael Engel, John L. Jackson
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      There is a paucity of empirical literature examining the experiences of gay Latino sexual assault survivors in the United States, due in part because there is little research focused on how to effectively recruit and engage Latino sexual assault survivors as participants in the research process. While researchers have utilized various recruitment methods to engage with gay Latino men, they have not focused specifically on sexual assault survivors. To address this gap, this study examined effective strategies for recruiting and engaging with gay Latino sexual assault survivors. Various recruitment methods were used, and social media-based recruitment methods proved to be the most effective. Researchers need to develop rapport and trust during the screening interview and avoid the risk of re-traumatization.

      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Researchers have become increasingly interested in response times to survey items as a measure of cognitive effort. We used machine learning to develop a prediction model of response times based on 41 attributes of survey items (e.g., question length, response format, linguistic features) collected in a large, general population sample. The developed algorithm can be used to derive reference values for expected response times for most commonly used survey items.

      Authors: Marlies Sas, Thom Snaphaan, Lieven J.R. Pauwels, Koen Ponnet, Wim Hardyns
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      This study focuses on the use of systematic social observations (SSO) to measure crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) and disorder. To improve knowledge about measurement issues in small area research, SSO is conducted by means of three different methods: in-situ, photographs, and Google Street View (GSV) imagery. By evaluating the methodological quality of the observation methods, the results of our study suggest that virtual SSO approaches have considerable promise for the reliable assessment of physical properties of small areas. We discuss challenges and provide avenues for future research to encourage the evolution of a more reliable approach to measure the physical environment.

      Authors: Ially D. O. Ribeiro, Natalia A. D. N. Batista, Severina Carla V. Cunha Lima, Michelle Cristine M. Jacob
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      This short take explains how we developed a photographic guide for assessing biodiversity in food consumption studies with taxonomy accuracy. To build the guide, we followed the “Guidelines on Assessing Biodiverse Foods in Dietary Intake Surveys” of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. As far as we know, this is the first tool developed in Brazil to support dietary surveys that consider food biodiversity. As researchers, this guide may help us make local biodiverse food more visible in food studies, improving our capacity to evaluate their contribution to nutritional and cultural outcomes.

  • Short Take: Do Postal Stamps (Still) Lead to a Higher Response Rate'
           An Empirical Test in Belgium

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Marc Hooghe, Dieter Stiers
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      When conducting a postal survey, a traditional recommendation is to use paper postage stamps instead of an automated postage system, to make sure that invitations have a more personal and attractive appearance. In this research note, we investigate whether this traditional recommendation is still valid. In the autumn of 2020, a postal survey was conducted among high-school teachers in Belgium strictly adhering to the Dillman protocol. The overall response rate was 43.4%. Invitations with a real paper postage stamp had a three-percentage points higher response rate (44.9% versus 41.8%), but this difference proved not to be significant. There are no significant gender or age differences between the groups. In addition, the presence or absence of a paper stamp did not influence the respondents’ choice for answering the questionnaire online or on paper, as those who received a stamped envelope were equally likely to choose the online answering tool.

  • Advance Translation—The Remedy to Improve Translatability of Source
           Questionnaires' Results of a Think-Aloud Study

      Authors: Brita Dorer
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Advance translation is a method of source questionnaire development for multilingual survey projects to enhance translatability and (inter)cultural portability. The aim is to minimize translation issues in the final translation stage. I empirically tested the results of a previously conducted advance translation in a think-aloud study and analyzed the utterances made in a mixed-method approach, calculating chi-square statistics and cross-checking these by observational notes of the think-aloud sessions. My study confirms the usefulness of advance translation in making source items better to translate, thus improving final translation quality. It appears to be particularly useful for comprehensibility issues of the source text, irrespective of the target language. I recommend that advance translations be carried out into all languages and cultures into which the final source questionnaire is to be translated. This will improve source questionnaire translatability and, thus, final translation and overall cross-cultural data quality.

  • The Effects of Prompt Interventions on Web Survey Response Rate and Data
           Quality Measures

      Authors: Hanyu Sun, Andrew Caporaso, David Cantor, Terisa Davis, Kelly Blake
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Previous survey research has found that prompt interventions for speeding and straightlining were effective at reducing these undesirable response behaviors in web surveys. However, the effects of prompt interventions on data quality measures are mixed, and it is unclear how prompt interventions affect key survey estimates. We conducted an experiment on prompt interventions using the National Cancer Institute’s 2019 Health Information National Trends Survey Push-to-Web Pilot Study. We used two types of prompts, one targeted speeding and the other targeted straightlining. We found no significant differences between the prompt and no-prompt conditions in overall web response rates. Also, we found that web respondents assigned to the prompt condition spent more time on the survey, had a lower percent of straightlining, and a lower percent of speeding on grid questions. Regarding key survey estimates, there were significant differences on estimates for one out of 40 items tested.

  • Participatory Modeling: A Methodology for Engaging Stakeholder Knowledge
           and Participation in Social Science Research

      Authors: Barbara Quimby, Melissa Beresford
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Participatory modeling (PM) is an engaged research methodology for creating analog or computer-based models of complex systems, such as socio–environmental systems. Used across a range of fields, PM centers stakeholder knowledge and participation to create more internally valid models that can inform policy and increase engagement and trust between communities and research teams. The PM process also presents opportunities for knowledge co-production and eliciting cross-sectional and longitudinal data on stakeholders’ worldviews and knowledge, risk assessment, decision-making, and social learning. We present an overview of the stages for PM and how it can be used for community-based, stakeholder-engaged social science research.

      Authors: Maxwell Izenberg, Ryan Brown, Cora Siebert, Ron Heinz, Aida Rahmattalabi, Phebe Vayanos
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      In the small town of Sitka, Alaska, frequent and often catastrophic landslides threaten residents. One challenge associated with disaster preparedness is access to timely and reliable risk information. As with many small but diverse towns, who or what is a trustworthy source of information is often contested. To help improve landslide communication in Sitka, we used a community-partnered approach to social network analysis to identify (1) potential key actors for landslide risk communication and (2) structural holes that may inhibit efficient and equitable communication. This short take describes how we built trust and developed adaptive data collection methods to build an approach that was acceptable and actionable for Sitka, Alaska. This approach could be useful to other researchers for conducting social network analysis to improve risk communication, particularly in rural and remote contexts.

      Authors: Taylor Lewis, Joseph McMichael
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Expected yield rates are essential to a survey’s data collection plan, as they inform requisite sample sizes to meet the survey’s objectives. Given an overall expected yield rate for a self-administered mail survey, this short take describes a simple method for using the Census Planning Database to assign differential yield rates to lower-level geographies within the study area.

  • Infrequent Identity Signals, Multiple Correspondence, and Detection Risks
           in Audit Correspondence Studies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Catherine Balfe, Patrick Button, Mary Penn, David J. Schwegman
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Audit correspondence studies are field experiments that test for discriminatory behavior in active markets. Researchers measure discrimination by comparing how responsive individuals (“audited units”) are to correspondences from different types of people. This article elaborates on the tradeoffs researchers face between sending audited units only one correspondence and sending them multiple correspondences, especially when including less common identity signals in the correspondences. We argue that when researchers use audit correspondence studies to measure discrimination against individuals that infrequently interact with audited units, they raise the risk that these audited units become aware they are being studied or otherwise act differently. We also argue that sending multiple pieces of correspondence can increase detection risk. We present the result of an audit correspondence study that demonstrates how detection can occur for these reasons, leading to significantly attenuated (biased toward zero) estimates of discrimination.

      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      How does shared identity between researcher and the researched influence trust-building for data generation and knowledge production' We reflect on this question based on two separate studies conducted by African-based researchers in sociology and political science in Nigeria. We advanced two interrelated positions. The first underscores the limits of national belonging as shorthand for insiderness, while the second argues that when shared national/group identity is tensioned other intersecting positions and relations take prominence. We also show that the researched challenge and resist unequal power relations through interview refusal or by evading issues that the researcher considers important, but the participant perceives as intrusive. We shed light on the vagaries, overlaps, and similarities in the dynamics of belonging and positionality in researching Africans in and outside Africa as home-based researchers. Our contribution advances the understanding of field dynamics in the production of local and cross-border knowledge on Africa/Africans.

  • Concurrent Mixed Modes: Response Quality, Speed, and Cost

      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      This article presents the results of a general population study that used three different modes of data collection administered sequentially. The study began with a letter that contained the link to an online survey. Those who did not respond were interviewed by phone or face-to-face. The article focuses on the cost of the study related to response quality, and hypothesizes that the sequential use of various modes, first using the most economical ones, yields significant cost savings that do not affect the quality of the information obtained. The results indicate that the online survey was nine times cheaper than interviewer-administered modes of data collection. The face-to-face survey was the one with the highest rate of item nonresponse, whereas the telephone survey had the lowest item nonresponse rate.

  • Are Scale Direction Effects the Same in Different Survey Modes'
           Comparison of a Face-to-Face, a Telephone, and an Online Survey Experiment

      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      A number of previous studies have shown that the direction of rating scales may affect the distribution of responses. There is also considerable evidence that the cognitive process of answering a survey question differ by survey mode, which suggests that scale direction effects may interact with mode effects. The aim of this study was to explore scale direction effect differences between experimental data collected by face-to-face, phone, and online interviews. Three different scales were used in the survey. Few signs of scale direction effects were found in the interviewer-administered surveys, while in the online survey, in the case of the 0–10 scale, responses were affected by the direction of the scale. The anchoring-and-adjustment heuristic may explain these mode differences and the results suggest that the theory provides a better theoretical ground than satisficing theory in the case of scalar questions.

      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      A recurring issue in intercultural research is whose knowledge informs conceptualization and design of projects or interventions. Fuzzy cognitive mapping uses arrows and weights to represent stakeholder knowledge on causal relationships and can generate composite theories to inform research and action. Cognitive mapping is accessible across different cultures, but participant weighting is not always straightforward. We describe a procedure to combine and condense maps from different stakeholders and an alternative operator-independent weighting procedure adapted from Harris’s discourse analysis.

  • Strategies for Establishing Dependability between Two Qualitative
           Intrinsic Case Studies: A Reflexive Thematic Analysis

      Authors: Ilyana Janis
      First page: 240
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Dependability (also known as consistency) is one of four criteria in rigor and trustworthiness in qualitative research. In this article, the process of establishing consistency is discussed through the lenses of constructivism and interpretivism, as the observed social reality is viewed as epistemologically counter-intuitive. Two strategies were used to establish consistency. First, method, source, and data triangulation were conducted concurrently to overcome differences in data collection methods from two qualitative intrinsic case studies. Second, code and meaning saturation were used in ATLAS.ti to identify similar meanings and interpretations despite different data collection methods. The findings showed that consistency can still be achieved, and similar meanings and interpretations can be established despite different data collection methods.

  • Short Take: Sampling from Transnational Social Fields

      First page: 256
      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Thanks to the latest developments in network-oriented sampling, it is now possible to measure “transnational social fields,” or emergent social structures that connect places or regions in different countries. These structures are instrumental in explaining sociocultural phenomena like the emergence of ethnic or demographic enclaves, social and economic remittances, and ethnic identifications. Nevertheless, they have only been mentioned metaphorically so far.

      Abstract: Field Methods, Ahead of Print.
      Conducting field research with a vulnerable population is difficult under the most auspicious conditions, and these difficulties only increase during a pandemic. Here, we describe the practical challenges and ethical considerations surrounding a recent data collection effort with a high-risk population during the COVID-19 pandemic. We detail our strategies related to research design, site selection, and ethical review.
