Abstract

In this paper we review existing research on different modes of survey data collection, with a focus on research using Understanding Society on the effect of mode on participation, the effect on data quality, and the cost implications of mixing modes. We also provide a brief review of research on the quality of data collected with the new methods that go beyond survey questionnaires, focusing on experimental work using the Understanding Society Innovation Panel.
