Household Market and Nonmarket Activities (HUS) – A Pilot Study
Abstract: Economic analysis of household micro behavior, data
collection for a longitudinal data base and development of statistical
methods for collection and analysis of micro data are the three general
purposes of the HUS-project. A pilot study was carried out in 1981/82. It
was designed to compare various data collection methods, test
questionnaires, give an idea of the likely response rate in a main study,
help in developing coding and editing procedures and give the project staff
training in the entire survey operation. The pilot study included a sample
survey of 300 households which were interviewed in person and by telephone.
This report gives an account of the design and the results of the pilot
