This course will focus on methodological issues regarding the design, implementation and analysis of surveys and questionnaires in public health research.

Implementation issues will include formatting and layout, methods of administration (paper-and-pencil, interviews, computer-based), interviewer training and participant recruitment. Analysis issues will include psychometric measurement properties (scoring, reliability, validity), cross-sectional and longitudinal analytic models and techniques and missing data.
