Exploring the Correlates of Parental Consent for Child Survey Participation: An Intergenerational Longitudinal Study

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Over the past four decades, survey research has been challenged by an alarming increase in nonresponse rates. In reaction to the public’s increasing reluctance to participate in surveys, scholars have focused on the reasons for, and consequences of, nonresponse; however, parental consent for the participation of their children in surveys is a neglected area of study. We address this gap by examining parental consent to allow children to participate in an intergenerational study, using longitudinal data from 381 adult participants in the Youth Development Study. The rich archive of survey data collected from the adults makes it possible to assess differences between consenters and non-consenters much more comprehensively than in prior studies. Our results show that socio-demographic, stressors, and both pro-and anti-social attitudes and behaviors of the parents influence their decisions to consent. This research not only contributes to our general understanding of survey participation; it also offers an important conceptual and empirical foundation for future work on intergenerational consent and child research participation.
