«Главное не бояться!» – воздействие тренингов на ожидания интервьюеров при переходе от PAPI к CAPI
While changing from one survey method to another, the role of the interviewer changes substantially, however, in current Russian studies this is not given proper consideration. Furthermore, the expectations of the interviewers about the transition to a new method of survey data collection may influence the success of this transition. One of the possible ways to change these expectations are the trainings that accompany the transition to a new method of data collection. In this paper we provide an ethnographic description of the actual and semantic component of the trainings for the interviewers of the RLMS–HSE on the transition from PAPI to CAPI. This description is supplemented by semi-formalized interviews with the field staff who conducted the trainings, and with the heads of the RLMS– HSE. After this, we tried to statistically reveal the effect of trainings on the interviewer's expectations.
