A Study of Mode-Effects of a Change from PAPI to CAPI
Journal of Contextual Economics – Schmollers Jahrbuch, Vol. 127 (2007), Iss. 1 : pp. 113–125
This paper examines the implication of the move to CAPI for data quality by analyzing the conversion from PAPI to CAPI of a subsample of the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) which was done within an experimental design. The paper assesses whether any mode effects are apparent for the response rate. Within the data, we examine monetary dimensions such as gross income, item and unit nonresponse rates. We were able to find some minor effects but our main results show that we have made the shift without introducing strong mode effects.
