The Washington Statistical Society and RTI International cordially invite you to the Gertrude M. Cox Award Presentation Testing for Bots and Other Suspect Data in Online Surveys: A Multi-Panel ComparisonDr. Courtney Kennedy, Pew Research Center What our nation knows about public opinion regarding the President and major policy debates now comes largely from online polls. While some online polls are recruited offline using probability-based techniques, most are recruited online using any number of opt-in approaches. Both types of online polls are potentially susceptible to erroneous data from inattentive respondents. Some opt-in polls might be susceptible to additional threats stemming from their recruitment procedures. The field lacks rigorous estimates for the incidences of suspect respondents in public opinion polls. This talk presents preliminary results from a large multi-sourced data collection aimed at estimating incidences of suspect data in probability-based and opt-in online surveys. NORC at the University of Chicago will host the event at its Bethesda, MD office, which is located 0.3 mile east of the Bethesda Metro station on the East-West Highway. Parking is available in the building. The Montgomery County Waverly Garage, which is a short walk from NORC,  is also available.
