Title: Planning for Nonresponse Bias Analyses
Author(s): Jill Montaquila*+

Address: 1600 Research Blvd, Rockville, MD, 20850,
Keywords: survey design ; response rate

Recent declines in survey response rates and the Office of Management and Budget's "Standards and Guidelines for Statistical Surveys" issued in September 2006 have increasingly led survey practitioners to conduct nonresponse bias analyses. Much may be gained by planning for such analyses during the survey design phase, rather than treating nonresponse bias analysis as an afterthought. This roundtable will provide a forum for the discussion leader and roundtable participants to discuss nonresponse bias analysis methods and considerations in planning for these analyses.
