Tool development: software for managing households and overall sample (SD)

This BMBF-funded project compiles input from survey businesses for further improvement of the SD (Sample Distributor). The SD is a software for survey agencies that contains the entire household sample of a country, that allows the assignation of households to interviewers, and that produces fieldwork statistics that can be used for monitoring purposes. SD enhancement includes extensive testing of new software prototypes, real-life simulations of the software in its environment, and feedback to software developers. Apart from that the project aims at improving the SD export files that produce fieldwork statistics, comprehensibility of the system output, management of households and contact information, user-friendliness of the software, and user manuals.
