Towards a corporate-wide electronic data collection system at the National Statistical Institute of Spain

Doc: 07/2011

Electronic collections present new challenges and opportunities in order to improve editing tasks. They offer the possibility of using built-in edits in electronic questionnaires previously not possible in paper or other modes of data collection. This topic covers all issues relating to methods or strategies about editing of data acquired through electronic data collection (CAPI, CATI, CAWI, etc) and the way the respondents can carry out editing when using electronic questionnaires. Other related topics may include comparisons of editing practices between electronic collections and other collection modes, as well as different problems using multimode data collections. Measuring the respondent burden and the quality and reliability of the responses in order to provide valuable information to other survey processes is another issue of interest. Papers describing editing strategies to improve relationship with respondents or the general editing process are also welcome.
