Recent developments in survey quality indicators may provide promising alternatives to the response rate. Survey quality indicators evaluate the representativeness of respondents, which reflects the quality of the survey inferences in terms of bias. We study the performance of these indicators through investigation of their sampling properties under different response rates and non-response mechanisms. NHANES data from 1999-2008 is used as the finite population for the simulation experiments. The experiments are conducted under two assumptions. First, all covariates associated with the true response probability are available and are included in the model. Second, auxiliary variables such as variables from a frame are known at the subject-level for both respondents and nonrespondents. A total of 72 scenarios from different combinations of experimental parameters are explored. The results
