At Surveytalk we have Australia-wide face to face capability with interviewing and supervision teams in each state.
Face to face and in particular door to door interviewing is still an excellent way of collecting statistically accuratedata through multi-stage random probability sampling giving direct access to households and their members. However, this is probably the most expensive method of data collection but still very relevant.
We have conducted extensive door to door studies, f2f intercepts and observations and mystery shopping for over 12 years.
Our face to face manager and supervision team have a long history of managing the “logistics” of running face to face projects across any scenario. Our teams are briefed either as a team or individually directly by the field manager and we monitor the progress of the project with each interviewer directly.
Most importantly, each and every completed survey on its return is handled individually and is thoroughly sight/logic checked, validated, edited prior to data entry. They are checked for quota target, quality of responses and interview length. This is an essential part of the quality process for PAPI (paper interviews).
We have conducted face to face interviews in remote areas such as the Kimberley Region in WA and have extensive experience across the whole face to face spectrum.
Since opening our doors we have conducted tracking studies for global tracking of consumption and usage in the areas of soft drinks, alcohol, laundry products all via the door to door methodology. Even though door to door is less popular now for these type of projects – we understand this methodology and the sampling at a fundamental level.
