Schaible, Division of Health Examination Statistics INTRODUCTION The Health Examination Survey The Health Examination Survey is one of the major survey programs conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics under the authority of the National Health Survey Act of to errors of coverage, processing errors etc. The quality of a sample estimator of a population parameter is a function of total survey error, comprising both sampling and nonsampling errors. Sampling errors arise solely as a result of drawing a probability sample rather than conducting a complete enumeration.   Length and timing of the interview with regard to time of the day and season (e.g., the harvesting period of agricultural crops) significantly affected missing values and measurement errors. For the implementation of the interviews, interviewer characteristics, gender, age, and the familiarity of the interviewer with the survey area are.

Introduction. 1 According to Eurostat, survey quality can be seen to consist of six dimensions: the relevance of the statistical concepts, the accuracy of estimates, the timeliness and the punctuality in disseminating results, the accessibility and the clarity of the information, the comparability, and the coherence. In interview surveys all these dimensions apply and interviewers affect.   A summary of the criteria for measurement properties of health status questionnaires is presented in Table property is rated as positive, negative, or indeterminate, depending on the design, methods, and outcomes of the study. The term quality control refers to the efforts and procedures that survey researchers put in place to ensure the quality and accuracy of data being collected using the methodologies chosen for a particular study. Quality-control efforts vary from study to study and can be applied to questionnaires and the computerized programs that control them, sample management systems to ensure proper case. Nonsampling errors can also occur and are more likely for surveys that are implemented quickly, achieve low response rates, and rely on online response. Nonsampling errors for the Household Pulse Survey may include: Measurement error: The respondent provides incorrect information, or an unclear survey question is misunderstood by the respondent.
