D3 Systems is hosting a live webinar on “Questionnaire Design for Cross-Cultural Survey Research” sponsored by the American Association of Public Opinion Research on Wednesday, March 4th from 1 – 2:30 EST. In this webinar, Research Analysts, Stacey Frank and Nina Sabarre, will provide guidance on how to handle obstacles unique to specific question types, such as knowledge and behavior questions, attitude questions, and questions dealing with sensitive topics.
Handling these question types is even more difficult in the international context, where there are different societal norms and cultural factors impacting respondent understanding. This webinar will equip participants to deal with issues like telescoping and recall problems, social desirability bias, and respondents with low education levels. Examples from surveys fielded in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa will be used to highlight problems that necessitate question adaptation to preserve understanding across cultures.
