$\begingroup$ (+1) These all are very helpful directions for the OP. I would add that Cronbach's alpha makes no sense at all with a multidimensional measurement instrument, but has to be computed for each scale separately, providing they have more than two items. If there're no prior hypotheses, there's no need to try CFA, IMO. It may be worth trying the item clustering approach developed by W.   The Census Program will ensure the availability of timely information and the necessary support to inform and guide the different types of data users, and satisfy multiple needs, given the different approaches and changes between census cycles. The Census Program has a long tradition of informing users about the concepts, variables and classifications it uses, as well as about its . o Surveys can be screened, cleaned, and analyzed within the R environment o Interviews can be coded and queried within the RQDA GUI and using a few syntax codes o Data can be exported in a variety of formats (full data set, tables, specific codes).   When conducting surveys, on the other hand, fewer questionnaires are sent which means there is comparatively less data to process. But, since surveys do not represent the entire population, they are not quite as accurate or reliable. So while census and surveys both involve data collection, they differ in their objectives and : Sogosurvey.

Evaluation of data accuracy may have two parts: Preliminary evaluation will enable the identification of any problem areas that have not been previously detected More extensive evaluation should be undertaken on data items where problems have been identified The results of the evaluation should be made available to census data users.

Other question evaluation methods, such as respondent debriefings, interviewer debriefings, and behavior coding, are useful to evaluate and interpret the differences observed in split panel tests.

Methods such as: (i) data evaluation as a part of supervision of field enumeration, and (ii) checking census tables against administrative or other available data may be called quality checks. A comprehensive check on a sample of raw data is recommended by FAO, and consists of a separate Post-Enumeration Survey (PES).

This phase manages the evaluation of a specific instance of a statistical business process, as opposed to a more generalized over-arching process of statistical quality management described in Section 6. It logically takes place at the end of the process, but relies on inputs gathered throughout the different phases.

This phase is comprised of three sub-processes.

there are many inaccurate sample surveys, also censuses with poor coverage. Sample surveys can be designed to obtain wide varieties of complex data, rich and deep in content. They can be tailored flexibly to fit a variety of needs and methods of collection.

Such data are not gathered with complete censuses; attempts to do so would result in File Size: 2MB. Respondents may interpret survey questions differently, mistakes may be made in processing results, or there may be errors in the frame.

Non-sampling errors can occur in both sample surveys and censuses, whereas sampling errors can occur only in sample surveys. Survey Methods. Typically, the data collection technique characterizes the survey.

Providing valuable and informative perspectives on the most modern methods in the field, Survey Methodology, Second Edition is an ideal book for survey research courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels.

It is also an indispensable reference for practicing survey methodologists and any professional who employs survey research methods. The book also covers issues that arise in surveys that collect longitudinal data via retrospective methods. Aimed at researchers and practitioners analyzing data from statistical surveys the book will also be suitable as supplementary reading for graduate students of survey statistics.

The Modern Census: Evolution, Examples and Evaluation Bernard Baffour1, Thomas King2 and Paolo Valente3* Abstract A national census provides important information on a country’s population that is used in government planning and to underpin the national statistical system.

Therefore, the quality ofCited by: coverage error, as well as the number of farms misclassified. This report discusses misclassification errors. Following each census, an evaluation is conducted to measure misclassification of farms on the census mail list.

Each record on the census is either in-scope (IS), i.e. a farm, or out-of-. The Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE) program consists of two surveys: the quarterly Interview survey and the annual Diary survey.

Combined, these two surveys provide information on the buying habits of American consumers, including data on their expenditures, income, and consumer unit (families and single consumers) characteristics.household surveys that predict variables not covered by the census.

These methods are used to estimate putatively precise estimates of poverty and inequality for areas as small as 20, households. In this paper we argue that to usefully match survey and census data in this wayCited by: Statistics Canada has prepared a compendium of methods that can be used to assess the quality of data obtained from surveys ().

Surveys must be rigorously controlled for quality. Often, evaluators will contract out survey field work.
