“Web Survey Methodology” Research Group
Research Project “Data quality in Web surveys”
Welcome to the “Web Survey Methodology” Research Group website!
The research group investigates methodological issues of data quality in Web surveys. The broad objective of the research group is to enhance the value of exploring ways to improve data quality in Web surveys. We aim to foster research on Web survey methodology in Russia by organizing meetings and discussions, stimulating cooperation among social scientists whose research focus is Web surveys, and facilitating partnership of Russian researchers with the global research community.
We have several research programs:
(1) Design features which might increase response rates in Web surveys.
(2) Reducing measurement error in Web surveys.
(3) New chain-referral sampling design approaches which make possible to reach target group by Internet and draw statistically valid results (e.g., online respondent driven sampling).
(4) Comparison of data quality between self-administered paper and Web surveys.
(5) Comparison of data quality between PC and mobile Web surveys (surveys completed on PC and mobile phones, respectively).

Muschert with the chapter of Prof. Dr. Inna F. Deviatko has now been published! Prof. Dr. Inna F.
