A randomized response strategy to be used in opinion polls
Sprache des Titels:
Randomized response techniques have been developed to reduce
nonresponse and untruthful answering in sample and population surveys. In this paper the idea of Liu and Chow (1976) for the estimation of relative sizes of different categories for simple random sampling with replacement is extended to all probability sampling designs. Additionally the case, that some respondents answer directly on the question of interest, is considered. Moreover, the procedure's offered privacy protection is discussed and an application of the method on opinion polls is presented long with an illustrative example.
