Cognitive testing of questions to measure family violence: CS11-613/99-1E-PDF
"In 1998 the Questionnaire Design Resource Centre of Statistics Canada undertook cognitive testing of the questions on spousal violence and senior abuse for the 1999 General Social Survey on Victimization. The testing provided unique challenges in the design of the cognitive methods used due to the nature of the survey topic. The findings of this research demonstrate how cognitive testing can be used to test questions on sensitive issues. Moreover, the cognitive testing was instrumental in demonstrating that a national quantitative survey on victimization can collect information on spousal violence and senior abuse"--Abstract.
