DOI

This is a methodological study on computerized data collection and interviewer-respondent interaction, conducted as part of the Nebraska node of the NSF-Census Research Network. The Work and Leisure Today telephone survey contains substantive questions on employment, leisure time, and technology use. The methodological supplements to the survey include interviewer characteristics, call record data, paradata, behavior coding, interviewer acoustic measurements, coding of responses to open-ended questions, and coded characteristics of the survey. The units of analysis are individuals and questions. Variables about individuals include work and leisure activities, demographics, survey participation attitude, conversational behaviors, and voice properties. Variables about survey questions include category, length, and readability.

This is a methodological study on computerized data collection and interviewer-respondent interaction, conducted as part of the Nebraska node of the NSF-Census Research Network.

The first component of data collection in the study is a computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) survey. The survey contains substantive questions about sampled adults' employment, attitudes toward their job, leisure activities, computer activities, and demographics (including age, sex, marital status, family makeup, and level of education). No incentive was offered. The survey was administered only in English. The survey took 15 minutes on average to complete. All questions were administered by trained live interviewers. Each interview was audio-recorded and transcribed. Investigators then collected data about the interviewers (gender, race, and tenure), call records (date, respondent disposition), and survey paradata (questions, order of questions, and duration). Each survey interview was behavior-coded at the conversational turn level, in fields including actor, action, outcomes related to questions with parentheses, laughter, speech disfluencies, and interruptions. Acoustic data on the interviewers was captured during the survey, including pitch, speech rate, and speech disfluencies. Rated evaluations were assigned to the voices. Additional coding was conducted to evaluate the accuracy of how interviewers recorded open-ended textual and numeric questions. Characteristics of screening and survey questions were coded using Flesch-Kincaid question reading levels and the Question Understanding Aid (QUAID) web tool.

Adults living in households in the United States with a landline telephone.

The survey has a probability-based, random-digit dialing (RDD) sample of landline telephone numbers in the contiguous United States. No strata were used for selecting the sample. A total of 25,551 phone numbers were dialed. Adults were randomly selected within households using the Rizzo, Brick, and Park method; adults in households with 3 or more adults were selected using the next birthday method. Adults living in cell-phone-only households were not represented in the survey.
