COMPUTER-ASSISTED TELEPHONE INTERVIEWING

Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) increases the efficiency, accuracy, and flexibility of surveys, operating in the background while the trained interviewer asks the questions and probes for accurate responses. The computer system stores a database of phone numbers and streamlines the process of sampling numbers, dialing, scheduling callbacks, and recording the outcome of each call attempt. Accurate, instantaneous data entry is assured by the CATI system. Questions appear on the screen in programmed sequence for interviewers, and responses are recorded directly to the computer. The costs and inaccuracies of separate data entry are eliminated.

SPECIALIAZED INTERVIEWING
