Enhance the quality of survey results by recognizing and reducing measurement errors.
Margins of Error: A Study of Reliability in Survey Measurement demonstrates how and hwy identifying the presence and extent of measurement errors in survey data is essential for improving the overall collection and analysis of the data. The author outlines the consequences of ignoring survey measurement errors and also discusses ways to detect and estimate the impact of these errors. This book also provides recommendations of improving the quality of survey data.
Logically organized and clearly written, this book:
In conjunction with research data gathered on nearly 500 survey measures and the application of an empirical approach grounded in classical measurement theory, this book discusses the sources of measurement error and provides the tools necessary for improving survey data collection methods.
Margins of Error enables statisticians and researchers in the fields of public opinion and survey research to design studies that can detect, estimate, and reduce measurement errors that may have previously gone undetected. This book also serves as a supplemental textbook for both undergraduate and graduate survey methodology courses.

In the example of the indicator, level of education, measures may include such things as questions focusing on the number of years of schooling completed, or levels of certification, or even a test of knowledge gained from school.
Since age groups differ systematically in their amount of schooling attained, cohort factors may contribute spuriously to the empirical relationship between age and measurement errors. In Chapter 11 I introduce several approaches ...
The aim is to improve recall by placing the measurement of timing and duration of events in several domains (e.g., living arrangements, marriage, fertility, schooling, and work) simultaneously within the same timeframe.
