Abstract

Errors associated with respondents failing to understand or process questions as intended, not following instructions, or not using answer options as intended are of central interest both to understanding causes of and solutions to survey error and to understanding how to design and implement instruments better to maximize the quality of data produced (cf. Groves, Couper, Lepkowski, Singer, & Tourangeau, 2009, chapters 2, 5, 7).
