  1. 1. Cost efficency of nonresponse rate reduction efforts : an evaluation approach

    Author : Sara Westling; Bengt Swensson; Risto Lehtonen; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nonresponse bias; follow-ups; response distribution; resource allocation; cost efficiency; evaluation; nonresponse error; Monte Carlo simulations; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik;

    Abstract : Nonresponse, the failure to obtain complete measurement on all sample elements, is an increasing problem in sample surveys. Efforts to reduce the nonresponse rate are expensive and their effect may not be as desired. READ MORE

  2. 2. Calibration Adjustment for Nonresponse in Sample Surveys

    Author : Bernardo João Rota; Thomas Laitila; Sune Karlsson; Risto Lehtonen; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Auxiliary variables; Calibration; Nonresponse; principal com-ponents; regression estimator; response probability; survey sampling; two-step estimator; variance estimator; weighting; Statistics; Statistik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we discuss calibration estimation in the presence of nonresponse with a focus on the linear calibration estimator and the propensity calibration estimator, along with the use of different levels of auxiliary information, that is, sample and population levels. This is a fourpapers- based thesis, two of which discuss estimation in two steps. READ MORE

    Abstract : Real world data on driver behavior in normal driving and critical situations are essential for car safety development. Data collection and analysis methods that provide insight into the prevalence of crash contributing factors (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Essays on Measurement Error and Nonresponse

    Author : Fredrik Johansson; Anders Klevmarken; Per Johansson; Markus Jäntti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Essay 1 deals with measurement errors. Matching survey data with administrative records provides unique opportunities to evaluate the statistical properties of respondents' answers. This paper focuses primarily on home ownership and wealth variables. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nonresponse issues when analysing business survey data

    Author : Åsa Grek; Mark Dougherty; Martin Johanson; Fredrik Hartwig; Lars Hultkrantz; Högskolan Dalarna; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Complex Systems – Microdata Analysis; Komplexa system - mikrodataanalys;

    Abstract : Data issues due to nonresponse or missing data arises often in company surveys or in firm data. Missing data and nonresponse causes bias. Another problem that causes bias is omitted variables. Accordingly, it will lead to wrong conclusions. READ MORE
