From the Inside Flap:

Renowned experts in survey methodology Seymour Sudman, Norman M. Bradburn, and Norbert Schwarz have come together to write Thinking About Answers, an essential resource book filled with practical and theoretical insights that will prove invaluable when developing questionnaires. In this important book, the authors explore what answers mean in relation to how people understand the world around them and communicate with one another. Thinking About Answers uses the most current insights from research on survey methods and cognitive psychology. The authors present the survey as a social conversation and investigate and document the meanings of the answers respondents give to researchers. Thinking About Answers offers new and significant advances in understanding survey research, including information on:

  • how respondents understand questions, search their memories for relevant information, form judgments, and edit their answers
  • the various theories on the storage and retrieval of "autobiographical memory"
  • guidelines for alerting researchers on how context can influence the question-answering process to produce different results
  • how the response alternatives offered to respondents affect the answers given
  • strategies respondents use to make estimates
  • how respondents report on their own behavior or the behavior of others
  • and much more.
Thinking About Answers is an invaluable resource for practitioners and students of survey research, cognitive and methodology researchers, and students in methods or cognitive psychology classes.
