Attitude Inferences and Interviewer Effects

Short Description: Both respondents and interviewers were asked about their attitudes towards ongoing political and social issues. In addition, information on the mutual perceptions of respondents and interviewers was obtained. The unique database provides new opportunities for investigating the mechanisms underlying the occurrence of interviewer effects in face-to-face surveys.

Methodological Details: Both the interviewer and the participant received 15 identical questions about each other. For example, the interviewer was asked “Do you think the interviewee is very concerned, somewhat concerned or not concerned at all about immigration to Germany?” and the participant was asked “Do you think the interviewer is very concerned, somewhat concerned or not concerned at all about immigration to Germany?” Self-report responses were also obtained for the same topics, e.g., “How concerned are you about immigration to Germany?”
