ITSEW 2012

Sunday, September 2, 2012 - 8:00am to Tuesday, September 4, 2012 - 5:00pm

ITSEW event site

The ITSEW is an annual workshop on analysis of - and methodology for - multiple survey errors. The theme of the 2012 International Total Survey Error Workshop is “Total Survey Error: Past, Present, and Future”. Topics include presentations of research that explore or analyze the trade-offs of two or more sources of survey error within the context of relatively recent methodological or statistical approaches.

Topics in the scope of the 6th ITSEW are:

  • Analysis of relation between nonresponse and measurement error (interviewer effects, contact or refusal conversion strategies)
  • Design of questionnaires for multiple survey modes
  • Decomposing mode effects
  • Mixed-mode data collection design including Internet web surveys
  • Quality of longitudinal data from Internet panels
  • Quality of paradata
  • Adaptive/responsive survey designs accounting for multiple errors.

The programme of Sunday September 2 consists of registration, a welcome reception and an opening session.
