Mode effects in mixed-mode economic surveys: Insights from a randomized experiment

Web-based surveys have become increasingly common in economic, marketing, and other social science research.

We use this shift as a case study to explore which characteristics are associated with women responding to the PSID and how different respondent gender compositions may affect data quality. First, we find that women are increasingly less likely to respond as their husband?s ...
