CRIC Survey Research Centre
CRIC's Survey Research Centre has been operating since 2003. The Survey Research Centre operates six permanent Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) stations and has a team of more than 15 fully trained interviewers who are employed to collect data for CRIC studies. The Survey Centre uses the CASES survey data collection software developed by the University of California at Berkeley. This system allows for complex survey design (including randomisation and automated skip logic), scheduling and weighting of callbacks to non-respondents, and simultaneous data collection and data entry. The facility also has the software and infrastructure to conduct online, face-to-face, mail and self-administered surveys. The survey research facility can also draw on the additional facilities of the Australian Survey Research Infrastructure Network, coordinated through Deakin University, for additional telephone interviewing resources.
