Exporting DDI 3.0 from Computer Assisted Interviewing Systems

Presenter 1
Jeremy Iverson

Computer Assisted Interviewing systems are rich sources of metadata, but current practice in creating data and documentation from CAI systems does not generally capture this richness, nor does it structure the documentation content optimally for archiving.

This session will focus on innovations in data production that permit the export of comprehensive DDI 3.0 documentation that provides not only an enhanced codebook with integrated question text and full labeling but also documentation of the survey instrument itself, including the universe for each question and the instrument flow logic. Data producers and archivists will learn from each other about how to produce output that is most useful. The workshop will cover mapping an instrument to DDI, using a database to store metadata, exporting to DDI, metadata reuse for surveys with multiple waves, and archival ingest of DDI-compliant metadata.
