TOPIC: TF4(WG1): Internet panels in Europe

TF4(WG1): Internet panels in Europe 5 years ago #132

Task force 4: Internet panels in Europe

WG1 Research agenda 3: Internet panels. Attrition rates, professional panelists, comparison with one-shot probability based surveys, etc.

(This could also be a joint TF of WG1 and WG3).

Task force leader: we are still looking for one.
Task force members: open to all.

Aim/Central research question
The aims of this task force are several:
  • Overview of existing probability and non-probability panels in Europe. We want to produce a list of online panels to put on the WebDataNet website. This list would be useful for researchers who want to conduct a web survey in Europe using an online panel. The list should include contact information and some basic characteristics on each panel.
  • Research on the quality of online panels in Europe. We want to prepare a list of quality criteria and a plan on how to evaluate the panels against these criteria. Such information would be again very useful for researchers who want to conduct a web survey using an online panel in Europe.
  • Project proposal for a network of European panels as a research infrastructure for the call for the 7th EU Framework programme.



Organisation/planning:
  • During the November 2012 meeting in Ljubljana we would like to continue to discussion on online panels in Europe that started in Mannheim. We would like to make a plan how to fulfill the above aims. In November we would start with the first aim of preparing an overview of existing panels. We want to prepare a list of basic characteristics that can be collected by each panel. In addition, we want to distribute the collection of these data for different panels among the WebDataNet members and to set the timetable for this task. The list of online panels with basic characteristics should be then prepared for the Mannheim 2013 meeting.
  • We plan the discussion about the research on the quality of online panels (the second aim) for the Mannheim 2013 meeting.
  • As regards the third aim, we would like to inform the WebDataNet members on the proposal for the 7th Framework programme: its current status, what input is needed from the interested WebDataNet members, and what is the timetable.


Planned outcome:
The outcomes of this TF are two:
  • List of online panels in Europe with basic characteristics and the WebDataNet evaluation of quality put on the WebDataNet website.
  • Proposal on the network of online panels in Europe as research infrastructure for the 7th EU FP call.

Let's us consider if we can present something on this topic at the next ESRA conference. There is a call for papers.

*************************

Dear Colleagues,

The 5th European Survey Research Association (ESRA) conference is
scheduled to take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia from July 15-19, 2013.
www.europeansurveyresearch.org/conference

We would like to invite you to consider submitting a paper for a session
titled “Household panel surveys: recent developments and new challenges”.

Traditionally, panel surveys have been considered powerful research
resources to study how people's socio-economic circumstances change over
time. Although this remains their main goal, panel surveys are facing
additional challenges. These include the increasing demand to
supplement survey data with administrative data; the requests from the
funding agencies to collect direct measurement of health conditions;
the need to implement methodological experiments to improve the quality
of the data collected; the trade-offs between granting certain quality
standards (in terms, for example of response rates) and limited
financial resources available; the increasing constraints posed by the
ethical committees .

With regard to these challenges, panel surveys have to deal with
methodological issues that are specific to this kind of surveys. The aim
of this session is therefore to provide an overview of the
methodological issues that survey practitioners have to deal with while
facing these new challenges. The focus of the papers will be on
household panel surveys.

Examples of the topics of this session include (but are not restricted to):
- methodological issues in eliciting consent and linking survey data to
administrative data,
- experiments in questionnaire content or fieldwork procedures,
- methodological issues in the collection of biomarkers and cognitive
measures,
-innovative ways of collecting data.


Please submit an abstract of 250 words or less via the ESRA website,
www.europeansurveyresearch.org/conference/, by January 13, 2013.
You will be asked to select an area of survey methodology when you
submit the abstract. Please select "Longitudinal surveys" - at the top
of the list.

Four papers will be accepted for the 90 minute session. It may be
possible to add a second session on the topic if there is a strong
interest, as in 2011.

You will be notified in early February 2013 regarding the status of your
submission.

Please see the conference website for additional information:
www.europeansurveyresearch.org. Please forward this request for
submissions to others who may be interested in this session.

We welcome your submission and look forward to the opportunity of making
the ESRA 2013 conference a success!

Dear Katja,



I have looked through the detailed description of this TF and it is very close to my recent work as Client Service Director in Ipsos Interactive Services, so I am interested in it. However I need to see the details, because so much information is available already on quality (e.g. ESOMAR 28 questions: www.esomar.org/uploads/public/knowledge-...ampling_May-2012.pdf), list of panels etc. that I am not sure what is the exact task (to find and classify this info or disseminate among social scientists etc.)



I also want to see the other TFs as I am interested in many topics on online research, e.g. new research methods, impact of mobile on surveys etc.



So, I would say that most probably I will participate in this TF but I can’t promise it 100% until I see the presentations of other TFs in the meeting J



Best regards, see you soon in Ljubljana:



Robert

Re: TF4(WG1): Internet panels in Europe 4 years, 11 months ago #189

Dear Robert.

Thank you for your interest. You are right, much information on quality of internet panels is already available. And the idea of this TF is both: to find and classify the panels and to disseminate this among social scientists. The added value of this TF is that we take advantage of the fact that WebDataNet members come from different countries and as such can provide information on the panels within their own countries. Within the meeting we would like to define a strategy how to collect information and what information (what basic data on each panel should we get), a strategy to define some quality issues of the panels, and a strategy to disseminate these among the interested scientists. In addition, I would like to get WebDataNet members working on online panels to think of joint papers or projects. If you have any idea on this, your are most welcome.



Best,

Katja

Hi Katja,

I would like to join this taskforce!
I'm not able to attend the ESRA myself this year, but will make sure the LISS panel is represented by one of my close collegues.
