Designing Effective Web Surveys - Continuing Ed
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Mick P. Couper, University of Michigan
The course focuses on the design of Web survey instruments and procedures, based on theories of human-computer interaction, interface design, and research on self-administered questionnaires and computer assisted interviewing. The course reviews different approaches to Web survey design (e.g., static versus interactive) and various design alternatives for a variety of question types. The course discusses appropriate use of various HTML tools (e.g., radio buttons, check boxes, drop boxes) for Web survey design. It also addresses issues such as (1) use of color, (2) types of layout, (3) use of tables/grids, (4) movement through the instrument, (5) design of error messages, and so on. The course draws on empirical results from experiments on alternative design approaches as well as practical experience in the design of Web surveys. The course is richly illustrated with examples of both good and bad design. The course does not focus on the technical aspects of Web survey implementation (Web servers, programming, etc.). Fees: M-$200 ($270 after July 18), NM-$260 ($330 after July 18), SM- $125 ($200 after July 18)

Protecting Confidentiality in Microdata Files - Continuing Ed
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Laura Voshell Zayatz, U.S. Census Bureau
This half-day course will provide an introduction to confidentiality protection for microdata files and will outline various approaches used for microdata files. People taking the course will not become disclosure limitation experts, but they will learn some specific methods they can use to protect the confidentiality of microdata files. Topics will include disclosure risks associated with microdata files, built-in confidentiality protections, statistical disclosure limitation techniques, software, reidentification studies, the role of Disclosure Review Boards, restricted access alternatives, and resources such as web sites, books, and committees that can offer further information and help on the confidentiality protection of microdata files. This course is intended for all data disseminators. There are no specific prerequisites for this course, though some familiarity with microdata files (or survey data) would be helpful.
