multi technique approach to data collection
Multi-technique approach to data collection
  • lets us introduce innovation in the processes without forcing the respondent environment;
  • overcomes population coverage problems in selecting sample units;
  • favours the respondent who can select the way he prefers;
  • provides the advantages of CASIC techniques (timeliness, cost, quality) but implies a higher management cost;

teleform verity u s a
Teleform - (VERITY U.S.A.)
  • Teleform product is a bridge between paper forms and electronic forms;
  • It turns paper into digital forms treated through OCR engines;
  • It can generate electronic forms HTML or PDF, which can be administered by web or by e-mail;
  • It allows the fax-server use for mailing and receiving paper forms;
  • At ISTAT Teleform was selected in 2000 because of the positive relation between quality and price;

perception of the statistical users
Perception of the statistical users

Positive perceptions:

  • Reduction of time and costs;
  • Increase in productivity;
  • Instant storage and retrieval of data immediately available in the production data base;

Negative perceptions:

  • Lack of product experts for assistance during the collection procedures;
  • Long response time using the Verifier moduleto fix data coming from paper forms;
  • Impossibility for respondents of saving partial versions of PDF forms;

Central IT Directorate Evaluation

  • Teleform is an effective data capture software to deal with simple forms;
  • It’s necessary to support costs for installation and maintenance of more adequate infrastructures (100Mbps network);
  • It’s crucial to get tools for monitoring and managing service levels of involved servers and network;
  • Teleform is not the only possibility: let’s analyze the survey process peculiarities to choose the right solution.
