Work Description

Title: Survey Distributional Methods Analyses Data Open Access Deposited
Attribute Value
  • The data used for this study comes from the survey responses of a study on Mobility-on-Demand in 2019. From the survey responses, we gathered the income information of the participants and the method through which they were recruited. From the study, we gathered the cost associated with each survey distributional method, and data such as number of people contacted, number of people responded, and number of complete/valid responses. We calculated a series of rates, including response rates, cost effectiveness, and average income through simple Excel functions, such as sums, additions, divisions, and means.
  • We compared the response rates, cost, and the average income of participants pertaining to 6 different survey distribution methods used in an initial study about mobility-on-demand services. We used the data to identify survey and recruitment methods that are more effective in reaching hard-to-reach populations. All the raw data used for calculations and the calculations themselves can be found in the attached spreadsheets.

  • Initial analyses have identified in-person onsite recruitment as one of the better methods of reaching hard-to-reach populations, and is calling for continued work in improving research methods in the field of HCI.
