Abstract

The paper outlines fieldwork monitoringtechniques that have been used in the fieldwork phase of the European SocialSurvey (ESS) in Slovenia in round 9 (2018), previous rounds and other nationalsurveys in Slovenia. The transition to computer-assisted personal interviewingwhich we adopted a decade ago at the Public Opinion and Mass CommunicationResearch Centre (POMCRC), University of Ljubljana, has been consistently usedthroughout the national research programTheESS was one of the first surveys through which we established higher standardsby using digitized survey tools. Over the years, these tools have beencontinuously developed and digitalization of contact data has been introduced,which has opened up additional possibilities for monitoring and maintainingsurvey data quality. Because of our awareness of unwanted interviewer behaviourand the human factor in recording people’s opinion, we anticipate variousanomalies that might occur and could be observed and dealt with during thefieldwork and later on, such as: response rate, interviewers' week-by-week workdynamics, the result of the last visit, logical and consistency checking, durationof an interview and other factors. In the reportwe would like to show some of these indicators in a comparative context.
