New AAPOR/WAPOR Task Force Report: Quality in Comparative Surveys
New AAPOR/WAPOR Task Force Report:
Quality in Comparative Surveys
Comparative surveys study more than one population with the purpose of comparing various characteristics of the populations. To achieve comparability, surveys taking place in multinational, multiregional, and multicultural contexts (“3MC” surveys) need to be carefully designed. In this report, the AAPOR/WAPOR Task Force on Quality of Comparative Surveys identifies the most pressing challenges concerning data quality in 3MC surveys and recommends priorities for future research and collaboration.
This report is dedicated to the memory of Lars Lyberg, who has had a profound and lasting influence on our field. He was a generous collaborator, colleague, and mentor, and a great friend.
