This project encompasses the compilation of input for questionnaire content and questionnaire improvements from the international group of researchers and from interviewers before and during pretest and field rehearsal.
From May 2017 till April 2020, professor Hendrik Jürges led the process as "Questionnaire coordinator", forllowed by Axel Börsch Supan. An important part of the work is the collaboration with Area Coordinators and software developers on implementation and refinement of the questionnaire which takes place in close cooperation with the Questionnaire Development team.
Analyses on item quality with internal data releases, checks of translation quality an analyses of interview and item duration are being conducted. The work progress is being presented regularly at internal SHARE conferences. Documentation of the generic English CAPI in a cross-wave overview is another vital part of the work.
