This course presents research conducted to increase our understanding of how data collection decisions affect survey errors. This is not a “how–to-do-it” course on data collection, but instead reviews the literature on survey design decisions and data quality in order to sensitize learners to how alternative survey designs might impact the data obtained from those surveys.

TOP REVIEWS FROM DATA COLLECTION: ONLINE, TELEPHONE AND FACE-TO-FACE
interesting topic to know about how to manipulate data
It's very lengthy but complete knowledge about different types of interview methods. Thanks a lot!
Informative, evidence-based, relevant, and practical.
I liked the course, but I think it should be more focused on web based surveys, as it is the dominant mode- form.
