Interviewers play a pivotal role in face-to-face surveys. Interviewer behaviour can have serious consequences for data quality as it can increase the size of different types of errors in all areas of the survey life-cycle in which interviewers are involved. The European Social Survey (ESS) is a repeated cross-sectional social survey using interviewers. It is conducted across 30+ European countries with the aim of providing high quality and comparative data. This talk will discuss the newly developed work package on promoting Desirable Interviewer Behaviour which aims to cover the issues of interviewer behaviour in a holistic and comprehensive manner, while integrating the task into the ESS survey life-cycle.

Roberto Briceno-Rosas is a researcher at the Department for Survey Design and Methodology at GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Mannheim, Germany. He is a member of the Core Scientific Team of the ESS and co-work package leader of the ESS work package on Desirable Interviewer Behaviour.

Joost Kappelhof is head of the Methodology department at the Netherlands Institute for Social Research/SCP. He is a member of the Core Scientific Team of the ESS and co-work package leader of the ESS work package on Desirable Interviewer Behaviour.
