Postal checking

Under the IQCS a minimum of 7.5 per cent of each interviewer's work is followed up with checkbacks by phone or face-to-face. A minimum of 10 per cent of the sample must be validated overall; up to 25 per cent of these checks may be carried out by post. The follow-up check might contain two questions from the interview, two demographic questions and the questions, 'Did you know the interviewer?' 'Did you see a prompt card?' and 'How long did the interview last?' If any doubts arise as a result of these postal checkbacks then the check is followed by a 100 per cent check on all of that interviewer's work. An example of a postal check form is shown in Figure 9.3.
