Are they willing to use the web?



"The IAB-Establishment Panel is the most comprehensive establishment survey in Germany with almost 16.000 firms participating every year. Face-to-face interviews with paper and pencil (PAPI) are conducted since 1993. An ongoing project examines possible effects of a change of the survey to computer aided personal interviews (CAPI) combined with a web based version of the questionnaire (CAWI). In a first step, questions about the internet access, the willingness to complete the questionnaire online and reasons for refusal were included in the 2012 wave. First results are indicating a widespread refusal to take part in a web survey. A closer look reveals that smaller establishments, long time participants and older respondents are reluctant to use the internet." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
