This volume presents an all-inclusive guide to the problem of nonresponse in household surveys, providing an overview of the theory while also describing practical implications. The book begins with a general overview of the nonresponse problem, outlining existing sources of error and guidelines for calculating response rates according to various international standards. The theoretical content of survey sampling is also explored and presented in a chapter along with a discussion on nonresponse on survey estimates and missing data mechanisms. Subsequent chapters provide guidance on reducing and analyzing nonresponse, the concept of representativity, weighting adjustment techniques, and approaches for obtaining additional information from nonrespondents.
Each chapter organizes the presented information in uniform components. Following an introduction, a description of the key theory and formulae is presented. Next, the discussed theory is applied to a real data set and accompanied with vivid descriptions. Example sets are spread throughout each chapter and a summary provides a brief overview of main points and concepts. Real data sets are used throughout the book and additional data sets available on the book's related Web site can be easily worked with using the Stata or SPSS software packages.
