    A field of applied statistics of human research surveys, survey methodology studies the sampling of individual units from a population and associated techniques of survey data collection, such as questionnaire construction and methods for improving the number and accuracy of responses to surveys. Survey methodology includes instruments or procedures that ask one or more questions that may or.   The impact of interviewer effects of this type has been reviewed by Wynder () and Eisenhower, Mathiowetz, and Morganstein (). Commonly, survey organisations try to reduce the size of interviewer effects by recruiting specialised field-forces and training them to follow standardised interview procedures.

This paper defines interviewer effects, argues for the importance of measuring and controlling for interviewer effects in health. instructions for the interviewer, display the interview schedule and allow electronic record-ing of responses as they are given.
