Mathematica’s survey researchers will showcase their work at the upcoming annual conference of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) in Austin, Texas, from May 12–15. More than 20 experts will discuss survey research, design, and data collection, illustrating how this work forms the bedrock for high quality research. Presentations span a variety of survey research disciplines, including recruiting and surveying diverse and hard-to-reach populations, such as noncustodial fathers, American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and online workers. Experts will also discuss locating strategies, wearable survey technology, automated data collection and cleaning, survey response differences, survey instrument reliability, and blending unconventional and probability samples.
Our staff will also moderate several panels. They will offer insight into using incentives to increase survey participation, improving response rates, creating innovative technologies, dealing with biases and estimation in nonprobability samples, and identifying difficult respondents.
