Переход с PAPI на CAPI: опыт интервьюеров и характеристики, влияющие на их ожидания

In this work, authors analyse the evaluation of pilot phase of the survey transition from the Pen and Pencil Interview method (PAPI) to Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) method using a tablet within the project "Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey" (RLMS­HSE) made by interviewers and supervisors. The analysis made using data gained from 13 interviews with interviewers, 3 interviews with supervisors, and a survey conducted on 50 interviewers. The main advantages of CAPI method are: a significant reduction in the cost of the field phase (especially in the long term), increasing the speed of data transmission and processing, and in some cases improving the quality of data (for example, increasing the proportion of meaningful answers to sensitive ques­tions about an alcohol consumption and an income). However, the transition to a data collection using tablets also involves some risks. The main CAPI disadvantages are an increase in the perceived length of an interview; a loss of flexibility in the process of filling in the questionnaire; unease or fear, as well as an increased cognitive overload of the interviewers. Also, the use of tablets associated with such technical difficulties as long response time of a tablet, full or partial data loss, difficulties with GPS position location.
