Are They Really Too Busy for Survey Participation? The Evolution of Busyness and Busyness Claims in Flanders (vol 27, pg 619, 2011)

By Anina Vercruyssen, Bart Van de Putte and Ineke Stoop


As both time pressure (e.g., Gershuny 2005) and survey nonresponse (e.g., Curtin et al. 2005) increase in Western societies one can wonder whether the busiest people still have time for survey participation. This article investigates the relationship between busyness claims, indicators of busyness and the decline in survey participation in Flemish surveys conducted between 2002 and 2007. Using paradata collected during fieldwork, we investigate whether busyness related doorstep reactions have increased over the years and whether there is an empirical relationship between these busyness claims and indicators of busyness.status: publishe
