Interviewer Impressions (Primary Caregiver)

Title

Interviewer Impressions (Primary Caregiver)

Description

A set of Interviewer impressions was completed at the end of each interview. In each, the interviewer was asked to rate behavior during the interview, the likelihood of participating next year, difficulty in locating next year, and language of the interview. Interviewers also recorded whether difficulties communicating hindered the interview or if there were problems with the interview, including the presence of others, general problems, or the respondent's understanding of questions. Basic demographic information was also listed here and included the subject's gender, birth date, and age cohort. Identification of the household as having more than one subject and an assessment of the type of dwelling unit are also included. Two sets of questions taken from the Wave 1 Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment were included. For these, the interviewer rated the PC's behavior toward the interviewer and the PC's behavior/attitude toward the subject and other household members. The interviewer also rated both the interior and exterior of the home.

WAVE 2: The Interviewer Impressions (Primary Caregiver) set of questions (PDF 3.7MG) was completed by the interviewer at the end of each interview with a primary caregiver (PC). It was completed for Cohorts 0 to 15.

WAVE 3: The Interviewer Impressions (Primary Caregiver) set of questions (PDF 2.3MG) was completed by the interviewer at the end of each interview with a primary caregiver (PC). It was completed for Cohorts 0 to 12.
