How to Approach the Unreachable? -Pilot analysis of unit non-response and ineligible populations in empirical surveys by re-contacting-
The goal of the research is to investigate the relative size and internal distribution of unit nonresponse and non-contact segments of the Hungarian population in the case of empirical social surveys. In our research, we determine the internal probabilities of being contacted and to be ready to participate if contacted. Also, our research goal is to determine “other factors” (auxiliary information) that might affect probabilities in the last stage of sampling (to be ready to participate if contacted).
