Asking sensitive questions on surveys is often key to gathering necessary insights on some research topics. Given the nature of these questions, however, respondents may feel uncomfortable and reluctant to respond accurately. To overcome this and ensure quality data, there is a wide range of recommended methods, including self-administered questionnaires. In a recent prevalence study, funded by The Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) and implemented by the ICF, researchers used Audio Computer-Assisted Self-Interviewing (ACASI) in SurveyCTO to determine the proportion of children (ages 12 – 17) in households who have been sexually exploited for commercial gain in the region of Karamoja, Uganda. ACASI helped to minimize the social desirability bias in the responses provided for these sensitive topics.
Please join us for this live webinar where guest presenters from GFEMS and ICF will share lessons learned from implementing ACASI surveys in modern slavery studies:
