NSDUH 2024 Field Interviewer Manual

Description:

This detailed manual was used as a training guide for the Field Interviewers (FIs) who conducted the in-person 2023 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). It covers the information presented at the intensive training for new FIs. Although it is written for NSDUH FIs, researchers may find it helpful for learning about data collection challenges that could affect data quality. It also may be helpful for those designing their own field operations.

The manual includes:

  • An introduction to the survey;
  • A guide to what is expected of FIs;
  • FI instructions for locating sample dwelling units, contacting residents, obtaining participation, conducting the screening and interview, documenting their experiences;
  • Quality control and administrative procedures for FIs; and
  • Copies of materials that were mailed or given to respondents.
