Adaptive Designs in Practice: 2018 International Conference Includes Westat Research

Improving case value through adaptive design was the focus of Westat research at the Methodology of Longitudinal Surveys II Conference at the University of Essex, Colchester, England, recently.

Adaptive Designs in Practice was authored by Westat’s Gonzalo Rivero, Roger Tourangeau, Brad Edwards, and Tammy Cook.

Their paper discussed implementing a “geographically aware” adaptive design. With this approach, interviewers in a face-to-face survey receive daily recommendations about the shortest route that achieves the highest value from their cases.

The conference highlighted research relating to all stages of the design and implementation of longitudinal surveys. Particular focus was on areas of significant advances since the last conference in 2006.
